    Ok well it could be many things...
    1st of all boot it up and go into the BIOS, if this tells you the temperature of the system in the BIOS then plz check the temparature.  Leave the system running for sometime and monitor the temperature..
    Do you get Blue screen of death at any time???
    Also when does it occur ie when printing ?  using a certain application, playing a game?
    Also is the system up to date with patches...
    Plz check the event viewer which is located under administrative tools and post any errors..
    It could ur Power supply???
    So we need to narrow down..
    also as u said it could be a virus, it could be due to memory problems...

    Start / Run /msconfig.exe / ok
    On the Startup tab disable everything and restart.
    It one of these residents is responsible, the PC will not reboot again.
    Enable them back one by one and reboot the PC to know wich one it is.
    Even send us the complete list. We can help do determine wich one reboots the computer.

    Also, just checkout that...

    under My Computer > Properties > Advanced > start up and recovery > system failure > automatically Restart is unchecked...

    and if it doesn't help then... follow the procedures for Spyware / Virus removal....

    Sorry, when I came to my office, the technician took my computer to format and reinstall new windows for me so now I can find the error post in event viewer...

    But it still the same. So now I can determine that it's because of hardware. Then I ask my boss to get a new one.

    Thank you very much for any suggestion.
