Windows 7: Spontaneous shutdowns

Spontaneous shutdowns

I recently spent about three days away, during which my Dell PC running Windows 7 was shut down. Since my return it has functioned perfectly with one major exception. It appears to either reboot or shut down spontaneously several times a day. Unfortunately this has never happened while I was working on it, so I haven't seen it happen. It hasn't caused me any problems but it is disturbing. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Spontaneous BSOD
I had been having this problem a few months back, but it was fixed by defragmenting the hard drive. I don't think that was a permanent fix, however, because my computer BSOD'ed about ten minutes ago for no known reason. I've read that the "deaddead" code means it was a manual shutdown, but I didn't...

spontaneous crashes
my computer -- a Windows XP SP2 32 bit system -- is crashing repeatedly, and often. I have no idea why, and the problem has been getting progressively worse over the last 4 months. At this point my computer is almost unsuable aside from when I am in safe mode (which is where I am now). In...
