I have already disabled the auto restart function in Windows, and yet my computer will still restart. Also, it will shut down for no apparent reason. This mainly happens when I play a large game such as Unreal Tournament or Warcraft III, not when I am searching the internet.

Also, my computer will freeze when browsing the internet. Usually, I'm listening to music and the music stops, and I can't really click anything. After that, usually about 3 seconds or so, I lose control of the mouse and things like ctrl+alt+delete and the power button, sleep button don't work on my keyboard.

I have looked on the inside of my computer and it is dusty in there, could that be the problem?

My computer used to freeze more often, until I removed ViewPoint Media player (whatever that is)...

Any help?

EDIT: When my browser freezes I get two warnings in the system log.
The first one says: "Your computer was not able to renew its address from the network (from the DHCP Server) for the Network Card with network address 001839067F33. The following error occurred:
The semaphore timeout period has expired. . Your computer will continue to try and obtain an address on its own from the network address (DHCP) server."

The next one says: "Your computer has automatically configured the IP address for the Network Card with network address 001839067F33. The IP address being used is 169.254.146.79."

I have looked up the first one but it said to disable or stop the DHCP Server service, but I didn't have the service. The closest thing I had was DHCP Client, but if I disabled that then I would lose internet.

Run Spybot, we had the same problem and it was something called HellzLittleSpy. I will warn you though that since I removed it, the computer has more problems than ever now.

Ok, I'll post the results I guess... I haven't had Spybot for awhile. I've been using NOD32.

Ok, it found 1 thing called something like FunWebProducts and I deleted it, hopefully that did the trick. My computer hasn't frozen yet (given it's only been about 2 hours)
