Non-Looping restart error.

Specs: Windows XP
Recently, I have encountered an odd problem when I start up my computer.Shortly (couple mins.) after Windows starts up, while some of the startup programs are still opening, the computer restarts. Before it even gets to the windows boot screen, it seems to restart again, and comes up with a screen allowing me start normally, or to start in safe mode. If I choose to start normally from here, windows boots up and there are no more problems. The last time this happened, I chose the option to use the "last known safe settings". Should this solve the problem, or am I looking at something larger going on?

Your computer must have some Virus or maybe some Script errors on th OS. So it'll be wise to have some back up because it'll might be cost to a OS corruption.

Automatic restart tries to prevent that form happening and try to revive the good state of your computer. So try to do the preventive maintenance for the OS like Virus scan, checkdisk, Defrag and shut down your computer properly.

"last known safe settings" could get your computer working if you encounter a Blue screen. But some times it doesn't work and you going to the last option on trying to System repair the OS with the CD or reformatting the OS . Like what said last time you'll never know when this things may hit you so itll be better to a Back on one of your partitions or on a removable external memory.
