From reading the post on the link there is no other choice but to format your hard drive and reinstall windows.

You can burn it to a cd as a iso file http://iso.snoekonline.com/iso.htm#Before_you_begin and an iso program http://www.magiciso.com/download.htm after that you will need to go into your bios and change the boot order of your PC to cd>hard drive. Then place the burnt cd into the cd drive and boot the PC so it loads the cd first then it will run a series of tests.

Computers reboot for different reasons.
Some of the errors Windows detects, and some it can't detect.

So, to start ruling stuff out, the place to start is with Windows. If it recognizes an error, it may have information about it that you can use to troubleshoot the issue.

That being said, try these links to see if you can find info about the problem:
