Unfortunately, there are so many possible causes for this that It's almost impossible to offer anything constructive without having the machine in front of you. It could be the result of just one issue or a combination of several ranging from a malware infection, miss installed or incompatible software, inappropriate use of cleaning or registry tools, a hardware problem, and so the list goes on.

Short of seeking expert advice, this information might help us to suggest something else:

1) During the boot process does your desktop appear and if so do any of your program icons appear in the tray before it reboots?

2) Can you recall any specific function you might have performed with the computer just before this issue occurred such as installing new software or removing something else?

3) Were you getting any Windows error messages on screen before this happened?
