    Hi

    I have NOD32 v4. I seem to be having problems when i do a virus scan. Half way through the scan the machine shuts down.

    It shuts down (like the normal way XP shuts down) or it simply "crashes" and reboots ?

    The CPUs goto 100% and the machine just switches off

    Have you checked your hardware ? Last week I had such a case with a client - the problem turned out to be hardware related.

    To ensure it is not the OS you could also try to boot from a bootable media such as some bootable CD/DVD
