<_<

Absolute beginner (Well - nearly - have managed to find this site!)

Had a problem with PC not issuing any signal to Monitor, Mouse, Keyboard etc. Took PC apart and put back together. In the end realised that enough power getting through to run the fans, but nothing else. Trial and error led me to change the plug fuse, and this worked.

Then, downloaded Ad-aware on advice of a friend. Ran the FOC version, may have got carried away and deleted when given the option.

Since then XP has been rebooting on a regular basis, without warning, every few minutes (a little like the ms blaster, but with no warning).

Does anyone have any ideas that could help me?

Sounds like you need a new power supply. A standartd ATX power supply will probably cost you around $40, and should be something you can replace your self. Just take note of where all the plugs are connected.
