Involuntary XP Home restart

Hello all, any help for this issue gratefully received. Recently my PC has started to reboot after being closed down with the 'Shut Down' command. It is also freezing when trying to start some applications, and using Ctr-Alt-Del to 'End Program' just freezes, necessitating a manual 'push button' shut down. No error message is given on subsequent reboot.

Cheers,

Scott

remove the last program you installed see if it works and work your way backwards removing as you go.could be anything.if you have created a restore point when all was working as it should then at start up press F8 and select last known good configeration or do a system restore to a point when all was well.updated any drivers etc lately? or just installed new software?remove and see if ok.
