Spybot turns off PC

Hi
My grandson has been trying to run a Spybot scan on his Win XP PC, but whenever it gets about halfway through the process it causes the PC to shut down. The PC then needs to be left for about 3 minutes before it can be restarted. He has installed the latest version of Spybot. Any ideas please?

Try starting the PC in Safe Mode click here then running Spybot.

`needs to be left for about 3 minutes before it can be restarted`

Sounds like overheating to me, might need a spring clean.
