    Hi friend,
    I understood your problem and as Windows 8 release preview is an trail version and has not yet activated
    so you can use the windows for just 1hour ant after one hour your system would shut down.... so before shutting down you OS will show a popup that your PC will shutdown in one hour and please save your data
    SO in order to solve this problem You must activate your OS or should try Windows 8 customers preview



    REGARDS

    dear friend,

    Is your computer starts & running properly!

    It seems like you your computer somehow executing shutdown.exe -s -t 0 command at the time of booting.

    You may go for full system scan from command prompt & take actions against the bad sectors.

    Go to the command prompt & type scannow command-and then hit enter.

    wait for some time & your full system will be scanned.

    Delete that if there is any shutdown shortcut icon.

    You may also try to run your computer in safe mode.

    I think it'll work better.

    Hope these info will help you a lot.

    Hi there,
    This problem may occur because someone/you unknowingly Scheduled the auto shutdown feature in Task Scheduler.
    In order to solve the problem follow these steps:
    Go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Task Scheduler > Find the Auto Shutdown Task then schedule it as you want or Just Remove the task.

    Regards.
