Hi again,

I wonder if you can point me in the right direction. I'm not sure if to do a HJThis log or what I am looking for.

Sometimes I am using the internet, other times I am not.

I have just finished running superantispyware which found nothing
and also
ran AVG and when it had completed the PC just switched off again and restarted it as been happening for about 2weeks now and I cannot seem to pinpoint the cause.

You need to disable the automatic reboot feature in the control panel. In the control panel go to the system folder, in the system folder under advanced there are the start up and recovery options, under system failure you want Write and even to system log and send an administrative alert selected and you want to un-select reboot the computer. Next you want to check your Event Viewer. Event viewer tutorial . And post the last 4 errors in each category. Also if the computer happens to crash and you get a the blue screen of death (BSOD) write down the error code it gives you.
