The 'Re-Start' could be caused by a virus. Vheck out you system using Norton Anti-Virus or some other virus checking program and see if there is a bug in yours. The automatic shutdown could also be caused by a virus or it could be in your system setup under 'Power Schemes' and the thing is actually going into Hybernation or Stand-By, but from the first part of your question, you should look more at a virus as the cause.....

The 'click the restart' button refers to clicking the 'start/turn off Computer' shown on the bottom-left of the screen in Windows operating systems (95, 98, NT, XP, Vista).[Anyway, my PC is working fine now after I did a run of 'SPYBOT', an anti-spyware program. Be extremely careful about downloading free software because that's when my problem(s) started. "Spybot Search and Destroy" is quite credible, but it is more important to get it from the original website and not some other free program download websiste. Restart also means to shut down and start up again. so naturally, your computer would shut down and start up again If you press the physical power button on your CPU, computers do a "power off" of the hardware system. Normally you must hold that button for several seconds (3 to 5 is typical ) to shut down. Note that if your operating system (Windows) was still running at the time, you may lose some unsaved settings or documents. To restart, press the button again and it will restart. If you had not properly shut down the operating system (using the 'Start' button and selecting Shutdown) then there may be things the operating system must fix when it restarts. You will see some messages about the processes it is running to repair any damage. This is usually not a big problem as the system is designed to repair those things in such cases. AnswerSYMPTOMSIf you shut down your Windows XP-based computer, your computer may restart instead of shutting down. The computer may also restart unexpectedly while you are using the computer to perform certain tasks. An error message may appear on a blue screen when the computer restarts.Back to the topCAUSEThis behavior may occur if Windows stops responding during a typical operation or during the shutdown process. By default, the computer is configured to automatically restart when Windows stops responding. To view this setting, follow these steps:1. Click the Start button, right-click My Computer, click Properties, click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery.2. Under System Failure, view the Automatically restart check box. If the Automatically restart check box is selected, Windows automatically restarts if the computer stops unexpectedly.RESOLUTIONIf your computer constantly restarts while you are using it, or if you are trying to shut down the computer after it has stopped unexpectedly, click to clear the Automatically restart check box. If you clear this check box, you receive an error message when the computer stops responding. This error message may describe the cause of the problem. You can also review the system log in Event Viewer to view the critical stop error that occurs when the computer restarts. For additional information, you can got to Windows in the Microsoft Knowledge Base.

Usually, it is near the main power button, and is smaller than the power button. Most computers do not have reset buttons any more, but if your computer has a reset button, it most likely will be on the control panel on the front of your computer. It usually is a red button you push to restart the computer. Most modern computers do not use a reset button any more, because restarting a computer without shutting it down properly may cause files to become corrupt or cause issues with files stored on the hard drive.


You will need to have the computer checked for codes. The light can not be "reset" until the cause of the trouble code has been repaired. When the cause has been repaired, the light will actually shut itself off.You will need to have the computer checked for codes.
