Default computer randomly shuts off

I have noticed my computer has been very slow lately, and firefox freezes for a few seconds alot. But, the big problem is my computer will randomly shut off. It could happen a few times in an hour, or maybe once a week. It doesent say anything, it acts as if I pulled the plug. Any ideas?

PSU, RAM, or Overheating. What is your system specs? Show us a screenshot of HWMonitor. Did you run memtest386+ yet? Run for at least 2 passes.

It is shutting down because it is so hot. What is the last time you dusted out your system? Could need some new thermal grease, too.
