I can assure you, there are only few people around, who are really good with reading those logs.
Try my previous advice.

Leave it on for 30 minutes, or so, and see, if it'll restart by itself.

Virus scan should be run in Normal Mode, though.

Let's run another test...

Go Start>Run (Start Search in Vista), type in:
msconfig
Click OK (hit Enter in Vista).

Click on Startup tab.
Click Disable all

Click Services tab.
Put checkmark in Hide all Microsoft services
Click Disable all.

Click OK.
Restart computer in Normal Mode.

Let it run for another 30 minutes, and see, if it's gonna stay up.
