For some reason whenever i load up msn within maybe 5 minutes the computer restarts...Its pretty wierd and it only happens when im using msn messenger. Anyone know what might be the problem? BTW im using windows xp SP2.

What version of Messenger are you using? Uninstall it, and reinstall the latest version, perhaps even the version 7 Beta. Also, run Ad-Aware/Spybot and an anti-virus scan like Ingolf said.
