    Hi pushkar , does it show a countdown like " Shutting Down in 60 secs " or something like that .
    IF that's so it's the SASSER worm .
    neways try typing 'shutdown -a ' in run . update ur anti-virus & if it detects the vius/worm 'SASSER' go to ms.com & u can find the removal tools for it.

    check ur power supply for realiability issues and also try to run the computer in safe mode for sometime and see if it works fine or not?

    Your problem seems unusual . try doing a full system scan with ur anitvirus, it might help.

    Hmm .... Home
    I've seen this issue occur due to some issue with AntiVirus, where over slow internet connection if the complete file is'nt downloaded within the timeframe the AV causes the system to reboot.
    Make sure your AV is up to date and then try again. Also try monitoring the processes working on your computer at the time of download look at the one with High number of threads and I/O operations in that interval.
