"A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down.. Tags: Computers Shutdown Windows 7 Last response: December 10, 2012 9:25 AM in Windows 7 Share BraidenC December 10, 2012 5:08:33 AM Well i was on Google, just browsing some images and stuff, and i went to grab something across the room, and i noticed my computer shut down. It was a blue screen that read - "A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer" There was some more text but i couldn't get it all before my computer restarted. The only thing i can think that MAY have caused this was downloading new drivers for my ATI Radeon 5450. (this was hours before...) I've run a few virus scans with Avast! antivirus and nothing.
