If it shuts down over and over (and it's a shutdown/reboot, and not just power shutting off), it's likely that lsass.exe is being closed, which starts a 60 second system shutdown/reboot (on purpose) initiated by the NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM account - because the local security subsystem is no longer running (lsass.exe), and the system's security is compromised. That is classic virus/malware behavior, particularly something sasser does (although there are others that could do this as well).
