Is Microsoft updates enabled and allowed to download and install updates automatically. Sometimes, it will download em, install em, then bring up a pop up asking you to restart and there's sometimes a time limit within which, if you don't select anything, it will restart itself automatically.

This could be one reason, but it's not very common to come across it.

It has happened to me too. I have a laptop and it shutdown itself without notice. One of my friends said it might be a problem with the cooler, because it's filled with dust and it has to be opened and cleaned. But I know that a laptop isn't supposed to be opened by anyone, and I don't know where my computer was bought (it was a gift). Please help me...

Right click on "My Computer" and open "Properties". Click "Advanced" and under "Sartup and Recovery" click "Settings". Uncheck the box next to Automatically Restart. Click Ok, apply (if necessary) and OK again.

This will cause the computer to give you a Stop error screen (BSOD) instead of restarting the next it encounters the problem. Post the info given on that page back here for analysis.
It'll be something like: STOP: 0x0000009C (0x00000004, 0x00000000, 0xb2000000, 0x00020151)
"MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION"
It may also give you a file name.

When you hit ctrl+alt+del what is the processor usage. It could be the processor getting rammed with stuff to do and then overheating, resulting in an automatic restart.

<b>mattlock138:</b> Will that not give him a BSOD, which will lead him to force restart?

Yes it will. The info on the Stop Screen (BSOD) is for diagnostic purposes and will help us to figure out what is going on with the system.
