What you might want to do is right click the my computer, and select properties. Then go to the advanced tab. Select the startup and recovery button. uncheck the option to automatically restart option. Another thing you want to check is the event viewer (control panel>administrative tools>Event Viewer) under the system logs. Check for any "Save Dumps", "system failures". Let us know what you find.
