Its maybe due to over heating or possibly your system cooling fan is not working or unresponsive. Did you ever try cleaning your system, since sometime to much dust in the fan or in the hole which makes hot air of the system trapped inside

Well Mister Ramiz,

There are a lot of thinks to think about when it does make a shutdown while on the internet.

When you are on the internet you are using a lot of hardware @ the same time but the first to look @ is your Wlancards drivers.

If there is a problem with communicating with windows then a shutdown can be the outcome ( driverupdate )

The second one is like technology said that the CPU is getting to hot, this can be because of to little airflow inside the machine or the CPU isnt getting enough airflow through the metal ribs.

The next point to look @ is the videocard ( is it aircooled or is it a passive cooled card ) when this one gets to hot than you have the problem that it is shutting down too.

Videocard drivers also can be the problem.

And like Rocketman says, send a specification of your systems hardware

Goodluck

JJ

You might want to download something like AIDA64 and look through the sensors to check if the temperature of any component is too high. If it is, then the PC reboots to save itself from a meltdown.

Disable the auto-reboot feature when errors are happening to be able to investigate a bit more.

Check your hardware (CPU, GPU, RAM, Power Supply and all connectors from/to them).

Check software and drivers.

Clean up your computer inside, especially CPU and coolers/air ducts).

Check for virus infection(s).

Rename firefox.exe to something other (firefox1.exe) and use it like this for testing.

Use another browser (with less memory usage).

Firstly, it is unlikely, it caused by virus but you never know. Do a virual scan, for consideration. Secondly, which brand of computer do you have, since most computers have built in System Diagnostic Tools, to diagnostic the overall system performance and stability?

You have to bear in mind, that during browsering, system tend become warm, because of playing videos, playing online games or downloading files and programmes. If, in-case you don't have System Diagnostic, I will suggested that you clean your system components with spray, vacuum and cloth, to remove any just that is blocking any air to flow outwards..

Fair enough, though, you didn't use or mention Malwarebytes or HitmanPro. Nevermind,then I am guessing, you have internal system components problems. Please see my previous post, about possible solution your problem

Yup, that's the first thing that needs to be done when this type of problem occurs. :)

You may have the FLAME virus. happened to me when I updated windows. System works for a while then it just became unresponsive all of a sudden and gave me a 0x0000007E (+4 paramaters) error BSOD [blue screen]

DISABLE WINDOWS UPDATE UNTIL MS GETS THE VIRUS FIXED!!! Everyone PC will crash soon, unless you are in the US.

You will need to do complicated procedure to restore your system. Back up your data by booting into safe mode (which doesn't work, with this virus, all the time) or from ubuntu USB. The virus is located in your BIOS.

If you want to know how to fix this deadly virus, PM me.

You're receiving some very good advice and I just want to interject on one little point. Please upgrade to SP3 - Microsoft no longer supports SP2. Reason for pointing this out is; after resolving your issue, we'll see you back soon with some problem or the other. ;)

512mb of RAM? maybe you should buy more larger.

i guess you have never heard some strange noise.

So, i think RocketMan get the point, you should use windows update, and MS made patch to avoid FLAME virus.

I will agree with RocketMan, that you really need to consider to Update your SP2 to SP3. And try to buy biggest size of ram, towards consideration installing Windows 7..

But I doubt that's why he's having issues. IMHO, he should check his hardware for issues.

I agree, restarting system is not caused by SP2. He is experiencing hardware issues, thats why I gave him System Diagnostics suggestion. But, I doubt he will be able to run it. Either he needs to clean system internal components or replace computer fan.

@Technology: Exactly, that's why I suggested AIDA. :)

Either way, upon opening the case, he should be able to see or feel the problem. I can't imagine how hot a component must be for the PC to restart. O.o
