Just had a phone call from a friend saying their computer has gone crazy..keeps shutting itself down, has done it seven or eight times on the trot! I know there was recently a virus which caused this, thought it was fixed though....is there another one??

There are always viruses about, and becomming reinfected is all too easy. Tell him to scan with his AV and also Dowload and scan with these click here

"saying their computer has gone crazy..keeps shutting itself down"

Or it could just be overheating because a fan has failed.

Does your friend have an up to date AV - if they do, then they should look for other causes.
