Norton Anti-virus scan

Computer crashes when using Norton Anti-Virus Scan - programme will start ok and then the computer will switch itself off after a few minutes of scanning. To regain power I have to unplug system from mains, wait say 10 seconds or so & then system will re-boot.
this has occured over the last 10 days or so.
I am using Windows XP - professional- Pentium 4 2.6 and a 400 watt CPU.

Can anyone help?

Uninstall Norton from Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel.

Then install a decent and free Anti-virus click here or if you insist on using Norton, re-install it.

Thank you VOG - have Un-installed Norton and installed AVG, but computer still shuts down on scanning.
