Double check your hardware in particular your ram. If you are overclocking your ram, random restarts are very common. I have also seen faulty ram cause this as well.

To stop it from restarting follow this path.
Control Panel>System>Advanced>Startup & Recovery>Settings and uncheck "Automatically restart".
This will most likely give you the BSOD (blue screen of death). The BSOD will give you information of what caused the problem. If you write down this information and post it someone may be able to help.
I just finished working on a computer that had these symptoms. It ended up being Bad RAM.

seems to me you have a virus,make sure you have latest dat files from your antivirus software, then go to run, type services.msc, hit enter, it will take you to all the ms services, scroll down to remote procedure and change where it says restart computer to restart service, click ok or enter or whatever to save and exit, the you may have to go to antivirus site to download a removal tool for whatever virus you think may be on your computer, it sounds like sasser or msblast, download those tools and run them, by changing the remote procedure to restart services instead on restart computer will stop computer from rebooting, that gives you time to go to antivirus site and download virus removal tool, after running tool and rebooting you may have to go back to remote procedure and change back to restart computer, any way good luck, this worked for me, all the best
