    Can any one tell me why and how to stop this please.I will be forever gratefull.
    Hoping for an answer

    Either there is a setting on your PC that commands it to shutdown after 10 mins of activity or your computer is experiencing some type of hardware failure.

    You tried 3 different programs and no luck...your PC is the problem. Have you had any problems with it recently? Overheating, crashing etc?

    Are you using a laptop?
    'Cos I have the same problem on mine.
    The only solution so far for me is to keep it cool, it shuts down because it's overheat.

    What was the problem with the computer specifically? Did it overheat, freeze, blue-screen etc?

    If it's overheating then you might want to find some small fans or an area where it can stay really cool....although unless that computer is very old it should be able to withstand a video conversion process.

    If it's freezing or crashing...that has to be the result of some hardware failure within the computer itself.

    Have you checked your power settings on the computer? I know some, especially Windows based PCs, allow the whole PC to shut down after a chosen amount of time.

    ....but to restate the biggest point>>>what's the exact problem you're having? Overheating, freezing, blue-screen?
