started happing awhile ago but it did work without this happening i think it may of been when i installed sumthing {at a guess} by video do u mean record it on my pc or record my pc screen as if u mean record it on my pc it will not work as it shuts down all the programs and that would eithere not save the vod or corrupt it and yes it happens at random

When did this start happening? Was it after you installed a update for a program or any new software/hardware?

Is it always random when this happens?

Could you take a video showing it happening?

Maybe if could snag it on video with a cell and post it to youtube yes.

I am going to see if anyone else can help me figure this out.

That was my thought, too.

This is far fetched, I know, but might be worth to check. If anyone else has had access to your PC, anyone who might want to play tricks with you, it might be this someone has created a task which could for instance force the log off (SHUTDOWN -F -L) after certain amount of idle time.

If this is the case you'll find a task for this in Task Scheduler.

i think u found it i disabled and delleted it this is really odd the only time sumone has had acess to my pc is when i was trying to install gow on my pc it did not work so i got in contact with the site (gaming dragon) and sumone installed it for me using teamviewer i find it odd that when i have payed for a game that they would do sumthing like that no one in my house has acess to my pc in my house as it is password protected and my family is not exatly tec savy at all so unless it was the guy form gaming dragons idk how it is there could this be done through a exe or sumthing like that? i will test my pc out for the next 2 days and see if it is indeed fixed and will report back

Doesn't look random to me. Looks like it runs every day at 5:42pm.

I hope you learned something about "Teamviewer" and letting other people into your machine. You got off cheap!

Wait a minute!!!

I looked through all the tasks but I guessed I missed that one. Thank you kari!

But is teamviewer still installed? Teamviewer has a feature where it can auto lock your pc after teamviewer session ended as well.

Check to see if teamviewer is still installed. If it is uninstall it!

Note: Teamviewer is a legit program and not bad, but people can use it to do bad things. Never let strangers remote into your pc!

Very true. Panda you might want to change all your passwords as a security precaution.
