    :eek: My computer keeps rebooting by itself. I thought it might have been a blaster worm but I get no warning message. It literally reboots itself whenever especially when I'm viewing a content heavy site. Any diagnosis?

    Is it a laptop or a desktop? When it reboots, does it feel hot?

    its a desk top. I though that it might be overheating but this will happen(phantom rebooting) first thing in the morning after the computer has been off all night.
