This being encountered most of the time because of a hardware issue. The computer's power supply might have broken down and could not produce enough power to run your computer and a defective cooling fan may also be a reason. Upon overheating, the computer shuts itself down trying to cool itself.
 
Things you should check:
 
  • Make sure power supply has enough wattage to support all your hardware. Also, make sure that your power supply is not in the verge of dying.
  • Make sure cooling fan is free of dirt and clumps to avoid overheating and to properly ventilate your computer.
  • Make sure that all the cables are secured and attached properly.

To tell you directly, there are a lot of reasons why a computer keeps on shutting down.  First of all, is your antivirus software reliable?  Did you ever try of running the antivirus software and scanning all the file thoroughly?  Secondly, if you are using the computer for running intensive software such as PC games, the system would require more power than what is actually available hence leading it to shut down itself.  Also see to it that theoperating system and all hardware drivers are updated. 

Perhaps you had installed softwares or devices which is not compatible to your computer OS. If you want to see if its compatible with your OS, please clickthe icon softwares for those devices and right click it to properties. Find the compatibility and run it to the recommended OS it uses.  You could also try checking the run in administrator because that usually fixes those errors.

Or perhaps your RAM cannot support some of your downloaded files.
