    Probably wouldn't overheat in 60 seconds. Run your AV scans and /or repair the OS.
  3. If it was shutting down due to a hardware issue like overheating it would not give you a message like that, it would just shut down or reboot.

    You can try re-installing the drivers for your system, if that does not work, you would want to re-install Windows after backing up your files. If you can't do a backup due to the shutdown issue, try SafeMode and copy the files that way. Or buy a new hard-drive and install Windows on that.
