    Jason........It sounds like you have a virus in your puter...
    do you have current Anti Virus that is up to date ?  Check to get the latest updates and then scan all files and folders in your machine

    You may also be sure you have the latest patches and security updates from Microsoft.

    Hope this helps

    dl65  ???

    If you don't know the answer, it isn't a dumb question.

    Does it restart when you do anything in particular? because ive heard of a problem someone else had with a web cam that if used with XP would restart the computer when switched on.

     well i got all the parts at newegg.com it's a wholesale computer place where you can buy indivual parts. and all my parts are brand new i just recently hooked it up to the internet about 5 days ago and before that it was doing it too. I got the virus scan and update all my drivers and everything but it still happens. i scanned all the files and there was no virus. And the message that merlin posted is what happens sometimes but my computer just goes right through that and starts up. It will usually say something about the hardware and do you want to start in safe mode or normal mode. i choose normal and everything starts up fine and then later it happens again. i hope this info will help you guys thanks.

    either try this You have "automatically restart" selected. (Press WinKey-Break, or (Start/Run/Sysdm.cpl),  Advanced Tab, Start Up and Recovery/Settings/System Failure/Unmark "Automatically Restart"/Ok/Ok  and this link may help you more>http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=http://support.microsoft.com:80/support/kb/articles/q244/9/05.asp&NoWebContent=1  if these do not do anything to solve the issue have a look in the events log my thoughts at the moment are graphics card ?
