About a week ago my computer started acting funny. It gets left on all day, and about every 2-3 hours the damn thing will reboot all by itself. I run windows XP and use firefox for my browser 80% and IE 20% of the time. Have spybot s&d installed. Any suggestions? It's kinda annoying surfing the net and then all of a sudden the damn thing reboots spontaniously.

Have you watched it reboot? Does it have a blue screen with white writing and then reboot?

mine got slightly loose onse and it would randomly reboot

Maybe it's overheating. When was the last time you cleaned out the heatsinks?
