I have been recently encountering a problem with my computer. After logging on and while the computer is still starting up it will just restart. This happens everytime I log on and start up and I will just have about enough time to write this message before it restarts again.
I have also noticed a lot more background work during start up, if that has anything ot do with it.
Any sort of info or help would be extremely helpful.

Kind Regards.

Try start-up in safe mode and do a virus scan.

Also that sounds like a driver issue or a program issue, what have you installed lately? Because that program or driver maybe crashing your PC.

By default when Windows XP encounters a system failure, it reboots without warning. The setting that controls this can be changed:
Control Panel/System/Advanced/Settings (Startup & Recovery)/System Failure/Uncheck-Automatically Restart.

You can use Event Viewer to view and manage the event logs, gather information about hardware and software problems, and monitor Windows security events.
To view the event log: Administrative Tools/Event Viewer or Start/Run/eventvwr.
To review Shutdown Event Tracker data, Open Event Viewer. Click System Log, scroll to the Event column, and find entries with the number 1075.

Could be a heat related problem -

have you checked to see if all the fans are running?

Uh,

the program you recently installed, Frostwire, appears to be a file sharing program, and could be causing problems, too.

Are you able to uninstall it?

That is a good question, how many fans are in your case and what is the room temperature of the room you are using the computer in? Because I have found that if the room the computer is in becomes to hot my laptop crashes because of overheating.

With the rapid restarts and a file sharing program - it's likely that you're infected. Since you can't keep the computer running long enough to do anything I'd suggest slaving it to another system and running an AV scan from that system. If that doesn't work, then a format and reinstall is the next likely step.

If you have significant technical expertise, you can try booting from a PE disk or an UBCD and try running some of the antivirus utilities from it.

Thank You everybody for you replies, and after many different "solutions" tried and failed, and after checking out the fan(it was OK),I finally gave into formatting and reinstalling the whole lot!
End result seems to be no more problems for me and a much snappier and happier computer, so its not all that bad!

Thanks again for all the help!
