    Sounds like either overheating or spyware problem.

    it looks like the machine fails when under a load is this correct ? since working with video files is cpu intense im leaning towards a failing cpu ! how much memory is available ? i agree you may have a spyware or overheating problem . has the fan a heatsink been cleaned ?

    I would agree with heatsink or cpu issue...crack the case open and check out the heatsink and fan...check for debris (dust and whatnot)a new heatsink shouldn't set you back too much...video cruching is VERY cpu instensize stuff...
