Did you do anything ie. installed a program or hardware, around the time the problem started? Or did you have a virus or anything like that?

In my opinion i would'nt suspect hardware would be the problem firstly there was a virus not long ago that affected pc's in such away restarting,freezing and booting up the pc all on it's own...Huh?

Have you got good anti-virus software installed and definitions kept upto date???

Have you checked windows update to make sure there are no security threats through any programs that may be installed with Windows XP???

Have been using any programs for downloading any required files that you might have downloaded???

If your anti-virus has the function to do a full system scan for viruses then do it and clean your hard drive , then defrag your drive this may help your system to run more efficiently...Wink

Alike KaTaLy5t has suggested that you take a good think if and what software you may have installed before these problems arised...Grin

I would Download,update and run:
Ad-Aware
http://download.com.com/3000-2144-10045910.html?part=69274&subj=dlpage&tag=button

SpyBot Search & Destroy
http://www.download.com/redir?pid=10289035&merid=104443&mfgid=104443<ype=dl_dlnow&lop=link&edId=3&siteId=4&oId=3000-8022-10289035&ontId=8022&destUrl=%2F3001-8022-10289035.html

Fix everything they find.

If the problem persists...
Download and run McAfee Stinger
http://download.nai.com/products/mcafee-avert/stinger.exe
More info on the Stinger app:

After ,empty your Temp/Temporary Internet Folder,do a Disc Cleanup
Then empty your Recycle bin.
Post back and let us know how it's going.
