MS Flight Simulator

Hi I have recently installed MS Flight Simulator 2002. It has been working in the past but when I reformattd the pc a while ago I didnt reinstal at the time. Tried to play it last night and after a minute or so the computer restarts. I uninstalled and reinstalled and the same thing happens. I dug out MS Flight Simulator 2000 and tried that. Exactly the same thing happens with it restarting the pc.
I have the latest graphic drivers and run XP. I am bemused as to why they both crash and restart the system. Any ideas please, my 8 year old loves flying the planes! Thanks

Are any other games affected?

I will open it up later and see if it is clogged up thanks. No, no other games are affected at all just these two FS games.
