Default 2001 civic ex will start but won't stay running

Need help, My 01 Civic ex auto. I was driving about a week ago all of sudden the car stalls out on me while I was on the road, got it towed to the house, anyway, the vehicle behavior is that, I start it will start no problem but about one second later it stalls out repeatedly so far I check the Fuel and spark which I am getting both, My friend suggested that it is possible that engine ECU (Computer) might be shorted out he also said these civic are pretty common on ECU issue's, need resolve quickly please any suggestion will help Thanks in advance.
