Which version of Windows XP are you running? Which Service Pack?

To know about this Open Start Menu > Run and type winver and press Enter

Win XP SP1 and older had a security hole, that allowed a remote hacker to shutdown your PC in this manner. You may have to apply latest SP.
Some worms like Blaster can cause your system to go on a restart loop like this. You may need to scan your computer for viruses.
