The only way i can browse the internet is ti minimize a game to stop the rebooting
I have shut off the option to stop a force restart in the computer options and it still reboots

FX 6300 6 core
GTX 750 TI 2GB

Which version of windows do you have by chance ? do you know how to get into safe mode depending on the os ?
For windows 7 reboot the computer after bios splash screen or post goes off hit F8.
Once you do you'll be prpmpted at a nice menu, choose safe mode without networking.
Log into your os, go to start type search--> type event viewer and hit enter.
Go to the os logs and hardware logs look for any errors with a red x and copy down what it says.

Did you or windows install any new new updates or updated drivers by chance ?
