The 1st thing you should do is disable the "automatic restart" feature. That way, an error message will be displayed rather than restarting. The error message *should* give you a clue to what the problem is, then you can work on fixing it.

Another possibility is the system is overheating. When's the last time you opened the case & blew the dust out of it, especially the heatsinks?

See event viewer logs.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

I would guess overheating. Blow it out. DO NOT use a vacuum cleaner.

static electricity from the hose can kill sensitive electronic components.
