Strange problem on gaming tower?

as of today my gaming tower is shutting down on this one game?
The game(sniper elite v2) was running flawless before today?
everytime i play a mission about 3-5 minutes in my PC shuts down and re-boots?
I tried my other games and it does NOT do this?
anyone know what this could possibly be?

    Sounds like game itself or the game config may be corrupt, have you tried reloading it

    So a game can make a PC shut down then re-boot?
    I will delete that one game from my drive then try re-installing it
    Just wondering why the game played great before and now all of a sudden this?
    i owned it for over 2 months and played it a lot this is strange!
  3. An improper shutdown, i.e. power surge, might have gotten malware in it, could be a lot of thing

    how can it e maleware if it ONLY shits down while playing this one game? It never shuts down on anything else
  5. Malware of different kinds can attach itdelf to open files, and quite often goes after the account of the user that is logged in and not other users

    You were right, turns out what was causing it was the "custom" difficulty level i was using.
    on this game you can create a custom difficulty of the actual game play.
    like where the enemy is more aggressive and your perks are not as good or do not have as many such as sight down scope helper,etc
    if you dont have this game it is hard to explain, but bottom line is when i do not use a custom difficulty level and just use the regular ones(cadet,marksman,elite,vetern) the game plays fine with no issues.
  7. Glad to ehar you found the problem
