    Welcome to TSG.

    Are you getting any messages after your restarts?

    Check fo critical errors in Event Viewer= Control Panel/Administrative Tools/Event Viewer/System, look for red X's. Double click the event, then the link and ok to send to view details.

    I'm having the exact same problem! have looked all over google and haven't found any answers. I have an internet shop and it is happening in all computers!!! help!! :S
    It seems like a blaster/sasser type but there's no message no nothing, it just starts to shutdown.

    I'm running windows xp, the computers had different versions (sp1, sp1 with some updates, sp2 and sp2 with the latest updates from windows update) and in all happens the same thing. Also the computers vary on hardware configuration and the are not over heat nor anything.
