Ah in which case I’m not sure what to suggest, it does sound like a windows problem though if windows is shutting down. I think the only things I could suggest is like someone else recommended a full virus scan, you could also try running malware bytes (which is a free program to clean malware) someone on the list said they had a problem using it, but its always worked fine for me, you could also try shutting down any unnecessary start up programs running at start up, and failing all that the more drastic approach of if you have windows 10 doing a windows reset, but although this will very likely sort the problem it deletes all programs from you’re system in the process so you have to reinstall everything, which is generally a huge pain to do. Sorry I can’t be more help, hope you get it all sorted though.

I find using internet explorer that jaws freezes/restarts frequently, so I’ve moved over to using google chrome and don’t seem to get the same problems. I think this is because internet explorer is being faded out and I’ve come across more and more sites that don’t support internet explorer anymore, although these sites will most of the time still work it means they’re not optimised to work with it so more problems/slowdowns occur.
Listers: From time to time Jaws shuts down and restarts on its own, usually while reading in html. Less frequently but often enough, the computer suddenly shuts down and restarts on its own. Is this also a Jaws-provoked thing?
Any ideas what is going on?
