My computer turns itself off when loading SL the second time I try to log in after installing.

I also have had this problem before. What I did was I let the computer reset for a bit then started it up, after it was on the desktop menu I went to my Security program( Norton 360) then ran the complete scan ( update, virus and spyware scan, internet explorer temporary files, windows temporary files, internet explorer history, disk optimization, registry cleanup and backup). After that was done scanning I went to Control Panel > Windows Defender > Full scan.
After I did this I ran the game program and it worked without shutting down the computer after the game is in the loading stage.
Hope this helps you.

The suggestions by Cinnamon and Foxtor are both very good and likely on track for what your problem is.  A system shutting itself down unexpectedly is very unusual and is always an indication that something major is going on in the computer.  A virus and mal-ware can be the problem but normally the problem is caused by some hardware device either failing or has failed in the computer.  Since SL is very graphic intensive it works your video card/adapter very hard......much more than almost any program commericially available to the public.......Cinnamon's suggestion to check your card is the logical first step.  SL is also extremely memory intensive and it will put a lot to stress on your RAM.......check your memory modules (one or more may be failing or has failed).  The CPU is the third device that gets a pretty good workout but if that is failing your computer would be crashing a lot more than you indicated it is........if it's failed completely, your computer would not start at all.  I don't believe your CPU is the problem.

 

You said you married a "geek".  Have him check both the video card and memory modules.  I'm sure you keep the inside of your computer dust free, but a good blowing out with a can of compressed air never hurts.  And  Foxtor's suggestion to scan your computer for virus/mal-ware is easy enough to do.......and not a bad thing to do anytime your computer does unexpectedly things (like shut down).
