OK, first i have had all spyware etc.. and feel that it has nothing to do with a virus.
Second I do know it was over heating just couldnt figure out what was causing it.
What I finally did was update my Bios and then do a system restore to a date that was previous to the problems. It seems to have done the trick. I am not a computer expert and do not even know if it makes sense what I did, but it worked. Thank you for all who assisted and anyone who may know why this might have worked please let me know so I can make sure it doesnt happen again.

I don't like when windows restart by himself too ... ^_^;
1) I deactivate all automatic sleep / shutdown button from keyboard or computer, or auto-shutdown time out, or when I close my laptop.
(energy management)
2) I prevent windows to install updates by himself. I want to decide when to update and reboot.
(auto-update config)
3) I take care not install dangerous virus / trojan or stupid program I don't know what he do.
Hope it helps ...

It could be overheating. Take a can of compressed air and blow it into the vent holes.
Have a look at the event logs and see if it gives any insite as to what's going on.
