Based on the information you've given me, it sounds like your computer may be overheating This will usually cause the computer to shut down, or close the program being run and restart Before you go out and purchase anything for your computer, try uninstalling, and then reinstalling the software You may have had a bad install If that doesn't work, you may need to purchase some new hardware Usually, a new CPU heatsink fan will do the trick If you have a spare cooling fan, try installing it in the case to help keep the unit cool as well.
