Hello and welcome to Geeks To Go

That file you listed is a random named file, and is properly malware related. Because of that I am going to ask you to read You Must Read This Before Posting A Hijackthis Log and then post a log in the Malware Forum not here.

To help find out what is causing the rebooting loop (it may be malware) I what you to Turn off auto restart, to do so go
Control Panel < System < Advanced < Startup and recovery
then
uncheck auto restart

Instead of rebooting you should get a blue screen with a STOP code. Post that STOP code here it will help work out what you problem is.

Let it go into the rebooting loop that you where talking about, instead of rebooting it gives a blue screen.

If that is the case it would have to be malware related, please go to the malware forum as explained above.
