Computer keeps rebooting - HELP

First I would like to thank you for reading and possibly helping out.

I have a really good computer, specifications listed below.

Earlier about a month ago my desktop had some spyware and viruses, but with different antispyware and forum help, I was able to restore everything. Also I used Kaspersky to keep my computer safe.

Today I was playing a computer game that requires high quality graphics and definitely cpu speed, but I have not had problems before, and thats why I bought a quality desktop.


My computer restarted, I got back to windows, and restarted again. It happened 2-3 times, I tried to run antivirus, ad aware etc, but none of them got completed, my system would restart after a shorter and shorter period of time.

Now I got to the point that my computer restarts right at, or right before the windows xp logo comes up and starting to load the windows.

I checked the fans in my computer, I have 4 of them, they all work, plus the CPU and the powersupply work fine. I tried to plug in the power cable somewhere else the computer did the same.

I tried rebooting safe mode, restore mode, vga mode everything, but it did not work. The computer keeps restarting. The only way I see something is when with F8 at reboot I chose the option not to auto restart when system crashes. With this I reboot, and instead of another restart I get a blue screen error message:

"The application failed to initialize properly (0x0000005). Click on ok to terminate the aplication"

I am not sure what to do, I took out my RAM put it back on the motherboard, the same thing happened.

I am not sure what to do,but my windows doesn't start so there are not many options I have.

Thanks a lot, I look forward for your help
