Have you tried the spy-ware/avti virus route first?

The most likely cause is a program or device driver causing an error...your system is probably set to automatically restart on an error.

Go to Start and right click My Computer,select Properties from the menu and then click on Advanced.

Now locate Startup and Recovery (System startup,system failure and debugging information)at the bottom of the box that opens and click on Settings.

Now remove the tick from automatically restart.....click OK and OK again to get back to the Desktop.

Now when you have a problem the pc should show a blue screen error message rather than restsart, which you can note down and post here....it will point to the source of the problem.
