Have a look at this previous thread.  In this particular case, with similar error message, the problem was a virus >>

Assuming for the moment that there is an infection, have you thoroughly checked for Malware & viruses?

If not, try downloading, then updating Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware:
http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php
When updated, reboot into Safe Mode by selecting F8 at bootup & run a scan.
Full instructions are available, if you require.

Also try the Kaspersky free online virus scanner which is a good way to find out if you have any viruses or spyware without having to uninstall your existing antivirus software>

If that doesn't resolve the issue, see if there is a dump of the state of your system at the time it crashed. The dumps are normally located in c:\windows\minidump\    
or  %systemroot%\minidump\

It (or they) will contain information about the bugcheck that was generated.
Can you paste the latest dump(s) in the "Attach Code Snippet" box and it can be analysed.
You'll need to rename single minidumps first with a .txt extension.    Alternatively, zip them before attaching.

You may need to disable auto restart:
Right click My Computer > Properties > Advanced > Startup and Recovery Settings and uncheck Automatically Restart.

If you see no minidump>
Enable Minidump's in Windows XP:

You could also scan the Hard disk for errors running the command chkdsk /r

Absence of Minidump could also be due to deteriorating motherboard capacitors, or flakey power supply.
