Well lets see. My computer will randomly restart at random times. I dont know why it does it, and Im not sure what makes it, my guess is either my OS is trash or my processor is overheating (which I highly doubt)

(actually while I was typing the specs, my comp just started running EXTREMELY slow, it might be Viruses, but ive scanned with PC Cillin AND Norton, I got rid of em, but they just come back... all of em.)

My Specs are.
Windows XP Home Edition SP2
2x 512MB DDR2 800 Dual Channel
Intel P4 3.0GHZ W/ HT Technology
NVIDIA GeForce 7950GT 512MB GDDR3, PCI Express x16
Antec Trio 650W
Networking is by NVIDIA and I also have a NVIDIA Motherboard

This computer is custom made and was built by a Professional.

Thank you for ur help.

The problem could be either the OS, bad psu, processor, or virii.

Please try the following:

1. Go to control panel->System to being up system properties.
2. Under the Advanced tab, under Startup and recovery, click settings
The Startup and Recovery dialog box should appear.
3. Under system failure, insure Automaticlly restart option is disabled.

Now, if the OS (Or possible hardware) is causing the problem, Windows will display
a bsod instead of restart.

If the problem continues, please run Hijack This (HJT) and post its log here.
We would need to wait for a qualified member to look at it.

Are there any recent system errors in Event Viewer? (Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Event Viewer)

Could be the pagefile being corrupted. Turn it off then on again so that a new one is created and see if that helps. But yes, letting Windows show a blue screen of the problem might determine the route of it, so if you see the word pagefile mentioned then it will be the problem. My PC kept restarting so I moved the pagefile to another partition and it seemes to stop the problem.
