yeah that would be a virus. they have command that will reset your computer after 50 or so executions. press controll alt delete and go to process and than go to start search and search everthing program that you dont know. Or you could get a anti virus program So here's what I would do, when faced with a randomly rebooting computer:

-Yes, I would consider upgrading to Windows XP, if the machine was capable of it.

-Make sure that anti-virus and anti-spyware utilities are running and up-to-date.

-Make sure that the operating system and all device drivers are as up-to-date as possible.

-Run a memory diagnostic such as Memtest86 or Windows memory Diagnostic.

-Run a hard disk diagnostic such as SpinRite.

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.....
