PC Powers Off

  User-E70658AE-BDD7-4DD5-AE5EE3B7769D7D2C 20:47 16 Apr 2004

Every time I run Spybot my laptop shuts down (as if the power has been switched off). Spybot runs normally for about 10 minutes, then something happens (I assume) and the computer shuts down..
It does not shut down with any other application, nor does throw wobblies or, shut down radomly - only when running Spybot.

Any ideas please?

Thank you

uninstall spybot, restart computer and then re-install it

Try another spyware checker - click here
CWS click here
Lavasoft for example; it could be that you have a spyware program that is closing down Spybot. Also, give a go in safe-mode.

it must have become corrupted and makes an illegal call to memory after 10 minutes. I would suggest uninstall and load afresh.

Unistalled and re-insalled, did stop again however, hit search and destroy button when it stopped, it then appeared to complete scan. At any rate it gave me a clean bill of health.

Thank you for your assistance.
