For quite some time now, my desktop (which runs 24/7 generally) will shut down after around 24-48 hours of running. As far as I can tell, nothing in particular is forcing the shut down. After taking a look at Event Viewer, there are a couple of events that occur at the time of shutdown consistently. However, I am not sure if these events are the cause of the shutdown or the result of an unexpected shutdown. The associated Event Viewer Logs can be seen below.

Event Viewer Log 2

OVRServiceLauncher seems to consistently throw an error (accompanied by warnings), all of which are associated with an Oculus Rift runtime. Though I'm unsure if this is a cause of effect.

As far as I can tell, there are no overheating issues or hardware failures.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

  • Have you tried to remove or update the Oculus Rift runtime? – Ramhound Feb 10 at 20:26
  • I have tried disabling the Oculus VR Runtime Service to no avail so far. – hotelmariofan Feb 10 at 20:39

    Sometimes disabling isn't enough, I also asked if you had tried to uninstall it. You should also try updating it. – Ramhound Feb 10 at 20:41

    I noticed that you are running of trace buffers when this happens. Try to start Perfmon → Data Collector Sets → Startup Event Trace Session → right click Defender API Logger → Properties, in the Trace Session tab change Stream Mode to File and Real Time, in the File tab under Log Mode tick Circular, finally click OK. Undo if it doesn't work. – harrymc Feb 10 at 21:15
