you have to increase your paging file
right click on the "My Computer" on the desktop then properties > Advanced>under perfomance "settings">Advanced>under Virtual Memory "change" then in custom size make the initial and the maximum equal to the 1.5 or your ram size (1G*1.5=1500) and you can rise it to 2000 if you have programs that need more paging file (maybe you can put the paging file in other hard -if you have more that on hard in your pc- this will reduse the read/write on you system drive)

and a defragment may help in this situation

There are no Event Viewer entries showing the system shutting down and re-booting?
Don't just look in the Application log, look in System and Security also.

Post back any Event ID's and text from the log entries (Errors and Warnings).
