All was good for my computer till recently, and the computer will sometimes, restart around 1 minute after startup. After it restarts, it will hang after the next startup.Then i'll have to turn off the main switch and rerun my computer. Most likely it will start to have a beeping sound and refuse to start up, with a blank screen, but will start working after another 1 or 2 tries. It will display a message saying that the computer has encountered a serious problem and ask if i want to send a error report when the computer starts to work again. I'v used this computer for around 2 to 3 years. What could the problem with my computer? I'v also just cleared my computer of malware on this forum. Please help me solve this problem. Thanks.

This type of rebooting behaviour can be caused by your computer overheating. You can check your system temperatures with SpeedFan, which should give you an indication of whether your system is running too hot.

Also, I would recommend that you open your computer case and make sure all the fans are spinning okay and that there isn't an excessive amount of dust in there that would impede air flow. See the following Bleeping Computer tutorial for guidance on cleaning inside your computer.
