    Ah...multiple threads , here's what I posted in your other thread.

    The fact that your system keeps restarting is a symptom of the Sasser worm making the rounds. You can find information on it HERE.

    Have you applied the latest Microsoft patches? Are you running a firewall? If the answer is no to these questions, my guess is your infected with Sasser. Read the information in the link, it will tell you what to look for and how to clean up the mess.
