Unhappy Flaming Badger

Firefox has been driving me nuts!

it works fine until i start downloading something then it reboots my computer. No blue screen or error message it just reboots and this only happens when I download!

Any ideas? I've tried reinstalling firefox (having stripped all files and reg entries) still happens.

Admittedly it does sound like overheating but my temps are fine and I don't get any errors running prime95. Plus this only happens when downloading in firefox, I can play ut04 or whatever for hours with no problem.

All thats changed recently is firefox has relesed a new version, i've installed a few extra extensions (which i'm not using on the new install) i've upgraded my Kaspersky antivirus from 5 to 6 and i've started using Ewido.

I have checked the drive for errors and defraged it, theres nothing significant in the event viewer (although I am getting some sort of error from the event service itself).

Any suggestions welcome, I think the previous install of firefox got corrupted and somehow thats still affecting the new install.
