Have had problems when using spotify,playing facebook games and other games, cannot perofrm user index test. Only running these tasks the computer just turns off, all drivers are current and up to date, no hardware issues or software conflicts. i can stream movies in hd to my bluray player with no problem, i can play hd movies directly onto the comp display with no issues there are no issues in my action centre and kasp internet security and win defender both say that there are no viruses. I have had the computer on idle for three days now with no issue. Any sugestions?

This issue can occur by kernel portion components, such as a hardware device, third-party drivers, backup software or anti-virus services (buggy services). I suggest you perform the following steps to begin troubleshooting the issue.

1. Disable "Automatically restart" option;
a. Click Start men and type "Sysdm.cpl", and press Enter.
b. Switch to "Advanced" tab and click "settings" button of "Startup and Recovery".
c. Uncheck the "Automatically restart" option and click "OK" to exit.
2. Perform a Clean Boot
a. How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7
3. Check Event Viewer Log
a. Click Start men and type "Event Viewer" and select the entry from the list.
b. View the entries for "Critical" and "Error".

From your post I am guessing that you use Kaspersky, is that correct? If so, I just had multiple problems with it on 2 separate computers and have since replaced it; problems were corrected after removal.

Clearly you do have either a hardware or software issue or it would stay on.
Couple of immediate thoughts.
Check PSU connections
Check CPU properly seated also graphic card.

What speed is your RAM set to, I'm not really liking that mixture.

or maybe not.

just tried the first suggestion of disabling auto restart and it seems fine now, the computer completed a stress test, has played facebook games and spotify (at the same time to be sure). thanks for the help

The first option of disabling restart wouldn't change/fix anything about your issue. It's just been coincidence that it hasn't happened since. You've got some hardware issues going on that definitely need addressed. You should answer some of the questions in this thread trying to help figure out what is going on because it will be coming back.

You might want to check your memory as well. I would download Memtest86+ below, burn it to CD, boot from the CD and have it run through the tests at least 3 times in order to verify there are no memory errors:

Can you give us some more info on your event logs that show kernel power errors? It should be an event ID of 41.
