I am running Windows XP with Athlon XP 1.2g - 1 gig ram - 4 hard drives running through USB2 - and the machine continuously re-boots.
Particularly if you are in the middle of something important.
Any theories?
Any Help appreciated. :

Can you tell us more about your problems? What time does it reboot and what do you think its doing? How old is this machine? Have you tried disconnecting evrything unimportant to making the machine run or try running in safe mode?

I suspect a blue screen of death.

Right click MY COMPUTER, choose PROPERTIES, ADVANCED, STARTUP AND RECOVERY settings button, uncheck AUTOMATICALLY RESTART.


The next time your computer reboots, you will likely get a BLUE SCREEN with a STOP code. report that code here

Thanks to anyone who posted a reply.
Problem is now solved.
I found a virus called "bootmgr" and once it was gone, so was my problem.
