when you say you turn off the comp, do you physically turn it off or just press "start,shut down"?

click control panel/system/advanced/performance/start up and recovery/settings

untick 'automatically restart'

try playing fs2002 and then shut down afterwards.hopefully you will get a usefull error displayed on screen instead of a restart.

note the full error displayed exactly as its shown and post it here or type it into the 'search(KB) box click here to see if its a known problem maybe.

first thing i would think of would be its maybe a graphics driver problem. what graphics card are you using and have you updated any drivers recently?
