    the only problem well

    check ur cpu cooler it is properly set up or not but before that u have to check cpu tempreature from the bios setting [harware monitor]. if it is more than 55-60 then properly set ur cooler otherwise check for kind of viruses as ur saying with any antivirus, spybot s and d and super spyware from download.com

    NOTE: update all 3 softwares before use and properly check with all of them.

    First Do this:

    1.) Open sysdm.cpl and goto Advanced tab and click on Settings button in Startup & Recovery section.
    2.) Now uncheck the option Automatically Restart.

    Now it'll not restart windows but it'll show BSOD (Blue Screen of Death), so u can read the error message and then post the message here ;)

    well even i have a similar problem... sometimes my PC restarts automatically.. without any BSOD errors . i have unchecked the option to restart automatically still i dont get the BSOD ..

    this usually happens when i run a scan with spybot s & d or adaware ..or install any new programs.

    .. but if next day ill run a scan with spybot.. it works fine.. nothing detected ..

    Help.
