Windows 7: Windows Shutting Down Automatically While HeavtFL STUDIO VST Loading

Windows Shutting Down Automatically While HeavtFL STUDIO VST Loading

Good afternoon 7forums, I have a HP pavilion p6-2330 with
windows 8.1 64 bit
14 gigs of ram,
AMD A6-5400k APU with Radeon HD graphics 3.60hgz

NOW! One day my Computer randomly shut down while I was loading some plugins in a Digital audio workstation called FL studio! I have no idea what drivers or anything I might have installed around the time this started happening , so its hard for me to roll back and pinpoint cause its been so long. Anyways. I searched the forums and internet on a whole for answers and I've done everything from adding ram, to changing PSU (EVGA 500w), memory diagnosis, HDD Sector check and repair, Malware virus scan, Re-installed FL studio, turned off Automatic updates (cause one time it did shutdown into an update), Its NOT A OVERHEAT PROBLEM, i don't think, fans don't move any faster and it doesn't shut down in the middle of Heavy FL Studio usage, Only while Loading a Plugin. I put my CPU through a stress test and it Passed with fly colors. No errors, I Have no Idea what to do Next. FL Studio Doesnt have a crash log, theres no error code or anything just Starting shutting down when I'm during heavy Loading. Ive changed power setting and turned of every auto-shutdown setting possible.

I've read that it may be a error in a plug in, or registry, or malware but how do i know, What can i check?

If the program is on the same computer that goes online I highly recommend a anti virus program.

What you should be doing is protecting your computer from infection and therefore you are protecting the programs installed on that computer whether those programs go on line or not.

Malwarebytes is a great program for what it was designed for, fighting malware.

Viruses and malwareware are two different things and both need to be stopped.

I know nothing about FL studio but I would like you to have a protected computer.
When a computer is infected many things could stop working properly.

The anti virus I use on my system is free from Microsoft. (MSE)

Microsoft Security Essentials - Microsoft Windows

Because you have been running without a anti virus program I would also recommend using this free online scan from Eset.

Free Virus Scan | Online Virus Scanner from ESET

Here are some instruction for one of our security experts


  1. Hold down Control and click on the following link to open ESET OnlineScan in a new window.
    ESET OnlineScan
  2. Click the button.
  3. For alternate browsers only: (Microsoft Internet Explorer users can skip these steps)
    1. Click on to download the ESET Smart Installer. Save it to your desktop.
    2. Double click on the icon on your desktop.
  4. Check
  5. Click the button.
  6. Accept any security warnings from your browser.
  7. Check
  8. Push the Start button.
  9. ESET will then download updates for itself, install itself, and begin scanning your computer. Please be patient as this can take some time.
  10. When the scan completes, push
  11. Push , and save the file to your desktop using a unique name, such as ESETScan. Include the contents of this report in your next reply.
  12. Push the button.
