On or about May 23, 2011, I believe Windows did an update. Ever since that time, I've been unable to run a full scan using MSE. To be sure, I uninstalled and reinstalled MSE but I still have the same problem. The scan runs for about 2-3 minutes and then my computer just shuts down - no pop ups, no error messages. Sometimes I can quickly reboot and other times it might take up to 6 minutes to get the computer to reboot. I can't believe it has anything to do with CPU temperature because I had 4 fans installed. When I do immediately reboot, I check the CPU and the temperature reads anywhere between 50 to 55 degrees Celsius. I'm now at a point where I just want to forget about using MSE and yet I'm told this is a good program. And yet, it does me no good if I cannot complete a scan and my computer keeps shutting down.
I've tried to find answers on your Community Forum but many of the discussions do not include resolutions because many folks end up submitting a Support Ticket. And that's what I'm doing now.
I guess I could restore my system to May 23rd but I fear that the problem will repeat itself with the waiting updates. What I need is a solution to this problem. Hope someone can help me. Thanks
