Sounds like you have a bad PSU....take it in and get it checked. If its bad, get a new PSU.

its most likely your power supply or your cpu overheating, if you dont know a lot about computers then you should try bringing it to a computer repair shop, like a mom and pop shop first, if there are none around you then try one of the big retail stores, best buy,circuit city etc

First of all, I would try taking your side panel off and see if you have the same problems with it Shutting down while its on. This well help keep your system cool if it IS overheating. Also like mentioned before I think it could be a bad power supply. Don't think it would be a virus, they usually can cause the system to reboot but dont think they cause it to shutdown.

I could be wrong somebody please correct me if I am.

yeah places like bestbuy will rip you off the most, do try and look for a mom and pop, but watch out because even some local stores will try and sell you bs you don't need and on the other side, some people don't know as much as they claim and yet they are running a business....these people will usually tell you the problem will be fixed by 'Formatting your HD' and will charge you up the butt to delete your HD and do something you coulda done....
