my computer keeps rebooting while i am using

Specs: Windows XP
I am trying to run Defraggler to clean up my computer--I have Windows XP. Defraggler runs for a short while and then my computer restarts and I have to start the process over again. I have been having problems with my computer running slow and restarting randomly for some time now which is why I was running defraggler.

A defrag won't help for that. One of the most common problems with shut down is overheating. If it's a desktop, open the case and blow out the dust around the fans. Unplug it first, of course. You may also have a failing power supply.

Thank you for your response. I had already opened the case and blown dust previously. I don't have problems with looking at email or at websites but it will frequently restart when I am viewing Youtube videos (but not power point) and, as I said, with the defragmenting.

Could you post the system specs. Name and model of the computer.
