Default Random Restarts

I am running on an ABS computer @ 1.4 ghz with a radeon 9200. Which is running with a Windows XP Home Edition.

What happens:

I left my computer on last night, and I get a Windows Error message when I wake up, so I restart. Now everytime I restart and log into my account, it will load for a second to the point where I just see the taskbar. There are no icons, none in the taskbar, I can't press the Start buttion, it will give me the thinking cursor. When I end task and go into processes, and performance its @ 100% and i have only 20 processes running. So I tried waiting it out a couple times and it will just restart by itself. Please help me!

How do I turn off system report error without being able to access start, and having no desktop icons? Same with safe mode.
