Like Nick suggested, it could be virus-related. In the past, I cleaned a
pc that rebooted after 3/4 minutes uptime.....
I was able to overcome the rebooting with the shutdown -a option.....
After that, I could remove the virus.

Good luck,

Dennis.

Also, check your AV is up-to-date and functioning. Do this first, 'cos
if it isn't, uou could have problmes all across your netwrok.

Check the options to see if you have Automatic reboot on system failure 
set.  My guess is that you do, and you're getting some kind of blue 
screen that will show itself when you turn that off.  Probably a 
hardware problem of some kind, check the RAM.
