PC Shutting Down Randomly

I am facing this weird problem with my PC since yesterday, after running the PC for a view hours it suddenly shutdown without any warning as if someone just pulled the power cable out!!!

I have not made any HW changes or installed any new SW or driver

The system is on a mild OC of 3.4Ghz

Also i am using MSE and Comodo firewall

The reliability monitor shows that "Windows was not properly shutdown"

PLz HELP

abu,

I've the same question as Scrooge, that is, what ar the temps?

You can use either Speccy or CoreTemp to monitor your temps. Links in my sig. Both of these are non-destructive and have no problems running.

Other recommendateions:
1. Do NOT overclock.
2. Disable Comodo 100% and use Windows 7's Firewall.


Is the problem gone?

i mentioned the temps above, using coretemp and msi afterburner

will try both your recommendations and report back

Do you think it HW related??

Also i scanned the my system using AntiMalwareBytes and it reported no infected files

abu,
I see you have been posting all over trying to get your overclocking to work.

The rule is do not overclock. If you want more processor power, get a more powerful processor.

If you want more computer performance then get a SSD and 8-12 GB ram.
