If you believe that your system is clean from malware, please download HWMonitor from this link , extract the contents of the archive to your desktop, run the file named "HWMonitor_x64.exe" as an administrator and the program will show you your CPU operating temperature.
Please share your result.

Okay, your temperatures are fine. After system unexpectedly shuts down are you able to turn it on right away, or it takes some time to turn it back on?
My computer shutdown itself after a few hours, after shutdown my computer can not directly on again have to wait a few hours later.
I've tried to replace the battery bios and I also scan the entire hard drive with antivirus software I use.

Like @OpenSecLabs said above, this issue is probably caused by overheating and/or your power supply. Please read this article and try to borrow another power supply from someone and see if the problem you're having is still present.
Your current configuration can be powered by PSU you are having now, but it may be that it's malfunctioning. Contact someone who is more experienced with hardware to check if all the cables are connected properly and how your fans are doing. Also check the Event Viewer following this guide (Step 6) and see the causes of unexpected system shutdowns.

Sometimes a software rail voltage sensors are unreliable. Even if you check your voltages from PSU rails from your BIOS...
The best way to determine voltages is to check them by Volt-Ohm meter if you have one.

p.s. Sorry I totally overlooked your voltages on the screenshot you provided above :rolleyes:

CPU: Intel q8400 @stock speed (2667) (Intel site Max temp is stated as 70 C)
you tested it with no stress I'm sure if you run a movie or a game the temp will pass the 70.
run some programs like hd movie and antivrus scan and post screenshot of the temp

Your temp looks high if that picture equals to regular use of desktop and not gaming or heavy stress software running in the background. IF you get these temps you shared in the picture with no stress at all, I think you have cooling issues. Under heavy load your temps could make your chip shutdown itself to prevent damages to a hardware level.

I had this issue before, it means the power unit is going to die soon. Just buy a new one.

Based on the findings, PSU will be your primary culprit so likely buy a new one with a consultation with the technician to ensure if that problem will not persist; better take an immediate action to avoid possible bad OS behaviour due to improper shutdown.
