mayhaps you have the Ms blaster worm.      try going to systematics homepage and downloading the anti-virus tool for it.  then download all the patches from microsoft.

Are you getting any error messages before it happens?
Something like Dumping Physical Memory to Disk  or anything.
Bad RAM can cause this.

What are the symptoms?  Is it running for an hour or two, minutes, or days before it restarts?

Did the problem exist prior to the new RAM?
If no, how long after did it start?

Hi V94,
click start>control panel>performance & maintenance>system>advanced>startup & recovery,then click settings.Take the check out of "automatically restart",then ok your way out.The next time it goes to reboot,you should see an error message,post it back here.
Take care.
