    Windows keeps closing my programs


    When ever I walk away from the computer for a little while, when I return all more programs have closed. I'm not sure what minimum amount of time passes before this happens but after an hour it's always displays this behavior.

    Anyone else have this happen? Is there a fix for it?

    Thanks

    What programs are closing, and what antivirus are you using, if any?

    All the browsers, Outlook, Word, Excel...I think every program that I've used.

    Using Norton Internet Security.

    Do you have Comcast constant guard by chance?

    No I don't. I'm not sure when it started doing this, it never shuts down either. When I click Shutdown it just reboots, the only way I can get it to stay off is by holding the power button for 3 seconds.

    Try turning off some of the antivirus guards and live scanners, then test it safely. If it continues then it could be DEP or another issue.

    I might give that a try...it may be a case where only a clean install will clear up all the little annoyances.
