Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then from system tools, run disc defragmenter.
Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD and Windows File Protection will show a blue onscreen progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot

Windows will appear to load normally then either the monitor will show progress or the screen will go blank, do not disturb this.
This will take an hour or so before it gets to the desktop.

I first error was a telling me my computer was over working itself. The second error was telling me why. (after i googled it)
Looks like the problem is from Webroot, who released v5.0 update of Spy Sweeper a few weeks ago. Giving tons of people the same problem as me. They know about this huge problem of random restarting and computer usage spikes, but do not have a fix yet. I have uninstalled Spy Sweeper v5.0 and reinstalled v4.5, like others are doing for now. I will keep you updated with this issue. Anyways thanks again for all your help and here is the thread that told me about this issue...
