    Every time I try to run a scan, the scan gets to approximately 42% done, and then my computer shuts itself off.

    My OS is Windows XP.

    I don't recall if it crashes on a particular folder or file.

    I don't know what error code it crashes with.

    I found c:\windows\minidump on my computer, but when I tried to open it, it was empty.

    I'm still trying to figure out how to fix my problem. Just wanted to say thank you and I appreciate your help. I will let you know what happens.

    eagles_fan,

    If you have non original OS, problem maybe in system drivers. ~one comment removed by moderation~ Good luck!

    I took my computer to my computer expert, and he told me my computer was overheating. He sold me a computer fan. The computer is no longer overheating. He also removed ESET and installed Avira. I don't know why. I was able to completely scan for viruses with Avira, and the computer didn't overheat. I'm just glad I have some kind of antivirus. Thank you, Cudni and Gosman, for your help.
