BTW, does anyone use hijackthis or ccleaner and can tell me if alienguise loads up at the beginning of windows? If it does, I'm gonna unload it as well.

(Something I dont recommend) I have actually pulled off my P4's heatsink while running a looping demo of quake3 (much like Tom's hardware, I just had to try it), and all that happened was the system clocked down, down, down... but continued to run (at a really horrible frame rate) and no burn up.
AMD's for a long while did not have this, and easily fried themselves. Anyone remember when AMD had to start putting the four pads on their chips to make sure heatsinks were level? Hehe.... I remember losing a few CPUs prior to that.
When most of the forum visitors get these shut downs, its when they are doing -anything- on battery.
