    Go into "control panel", "system" "advanced" tab... then uncheck "reboot on
    errors"

    Something is causing a "system failure" class error on the computer.
    This could be a hardware defect, a malfunctioning device driver, or a
    misbehaving application program, or even a defective Windows
    component.

    The change suggested by "Digiti" will stop the reboots. However they
    will probably be replaced with a "Blue Screen Of Death" STOP error
    message. In that case the contents of the STOP error message,
    including the codes, will be a direct clue as to what the underlying
    cause is.

    Post the information from the STOP error back here if you need further
    advice or assistance.

    Good luck
