Dealing with an older APU system, which at some point during a full scan using latest mbam the system powers off, turn back on windows states wasn't shut down properly.

I will provide a hwinfo64 snapshot and pwr supply later, system has been around since 2013, i know it has tons of PUPs/PUMs, trying to clean it. I'm unsure if it is overheating but i will get a temperature reading before and during the scan. I will try to get a event viewer too.

Im just unsure if its the os or if hardware at this rate.

Any ideas?

hard drive?? does it power off at any other scenario? does it work steady when idle and keeps functioning? You could try to make an offline rescue disc and scan from there to clean it, also with old systems it is hard to tell.

MBAM scans used to increase processor temps for me......try HWMonitor perhaps.......i would check windows reliability monitor for any error messages...the third option would be an overloaded PSU..

You say "at some point", is it always the same point or different points?

I recommend you run Windows Disk Cleanup (or CCleaner) before scanning. No need to scan potentially 1000s of temp files. You might also try running Malwarebytes in Safe Mode.
MBAM scans used to increase processor temps for me....
I see that as normal - regardless the scanner. While scanning should not max out CPU utilization, it does use it, and for more than a few seconds.

I didn’t quite understand this. Are you saying it does it consistently?

Yes each scan it has shut down.

@Bill_Bright Also some point means I'm afk, I will get full specs later today, las i recall its using stock hsf.

Im wondering if I should just pull the drive and hook it along side a rig that is fully patched and secure and do the scan...

Yes, pull the drive: if "ransom ware" is found on "C" , the OS backup partition is most likely infected as well. Have had luck with Windows Security cleaning this up.
Wipe and restore maybe the only solution as much as it's a "pita".

Hard drive itself or PSU is suspect. In the case of PSU it would be voltage out of spec... but then it would have to also happen with other loads, not just scanning.

If its just scanning, good chance the HDD is dead or close to it. Had something along those lines and the behaviour looks similar.

Not a believer in temps being an issue... you already get elevated temps when you go through the BIOS and boot up.

Ransomware is def also possible here.

I wouldn't bother pulling the drive unless cleaning the clutter and running in safe mode fails. Or, there is a flash drive version of Malwarebytes you can try too.

I know you haven’t witnessed it in action but if other modes of investigation come up puzzling it may be an access violation and you may want to scan it with a root kit scanner.

Pull the drive and put it into an enclosure. Its either a serious infection, or a dying drive or other hardware, if its other hardware doing it more will only kill the system, if its the drive doing more will only kill it, and if its an infection that has access to reboot or shutdown the system you will need an offline scan.

The hdd doesnt lock up and os runs ok, just believe now either psu or cpu overheat...

Its not a soft off like windows goes through a shut down sequence, the system just goes poof like the power switch on the psu was actuated. And it is infected because of the pups/pums, so im trying to clean this bugger up.

Mbam has that built in

that’s true they also have the standalone tool too. But where one fails another may succeed. Was just pointing it out. An access violation to tampered memory address space usually ends with reboot or shutdown without warning.

Yeah i need to give this thing a thorough dusting, it is bad, and yes the stock cooler is being used. The psu is a macron mpt 400 (probably no good)

Normal use it doesnt just suddenly power off...

Well, it is not a PSU I would buy, but if it has been working fine, I would not replace it over this. This does not sound like a PSU problem to me. Shutdowns caused by power are not so specific - that is, they would not happen only when doing a specific task with a specific program. They would seem to be more random, or when tasking the computer with any program.

I might suspect RAM, but again, at this point, I would clean out the clutter and scan again, either in safe mode, or via a thumb drive. Dust can sure cause heat related shutdowns, but again, not with just one specific program. And you can always monitor your temps with CoreTemp or some other monitor to see if dust, in the middle of Winter is causing problems.

Yeah the cpu is way too hot. Bios reports at 78°
Since running the BIOS Setup Menu is just about the least demanding task we can ask of our systems, yeah 78° is way too hot (assuming that's 78°C and not 78°F). You should check to make sure your case fans are spinning up and providing a good "flow" of air through the case too.
I just hope this drive isnt so full of crap that a mbam scan causes shutdown
Even if the drive is, I don't see why or how that would cause Malwarebytes to shut the computer down. I can see it bogging Malwarebytes down and slowing the system down to a crawl, but it should still trudge along and eventually complete.

Something else is going on. Hopefully a good clean will take care of it. Remember to take the necessary ESD precautions to discharge your body of any static.

Did you run Windows Disk Cleanup (or CCleaner) yet? You don't want to be running critically low on free disk space either.
