PC keeps restarting by itself?

I manage to learn how to use a computer, but obviously I have no idea about its technical stuff except perhaps for very basic things. Anyway, the last few days my PC keeps restarting by itself. It is very puzzling to me, not to mention annoying and highly frustrating. It seems to happen when I am surfing the web, and it even happened in the middle of using the search function in myLot. I was also reading a discussion in myLot when it happened, without clicking anything or touching anything on my computer, all of a sudden the screen went black and the computer is restarting… What could be the reasons? Is it infected by some kind of viruses?

I also suspect that the problem has something to do with using the internet. It does not happen when my browser is closed. Ironically, what I do on the computer mostly requires the use of internet...

It has not happened all morning today. I hope it's somehow gone. If it's happening again I'll probably call someone to take a look at it...

The possible reason is virus attack, as far i can guess. I am not an expert too in computer but as i have been using computers from so many years, hence i have guessed. Again, if you give overload to your computer by opening too many tabs or downloading too many stuffs, then it can happen too. But prime chance defines virus. So try to check it. there are many demos on net to clean your pc to some extend. have a nice time sishy.

I also suspected some kind of virus attack. Luckily my PC has an antivirus software; I think it fixed the problem somehow because the PC is not restarting by itself anymore... Btw, beautiful attires you have on the avatar... Any special occasion?

Have you checked the cpu temperature? It's in the Bios menu in the start, if it is quite high maybe it is the reason why it restarts since the pc closes if it reaches a certain cpu temp.

Thank you for your suggestion. Actually, I can't figure out how to check the CPU temperature . But just by touching it from the outside, it seems quite normal to me. Anyway, the problem has not happened all morning today. I hope somehow it fixed itself, and I won't need to call a technician to take a look or something...
