Exclamation Running Windows Update causes system reboot

Recently I have had some major computer trouble, and have had to almost start from scratch.

I am now in the process of downloading all the Windows Updates, of which I have done about half of what I need to do.

For some reason though when I open Windows Update (the Internet Explorer thing), it opens the page, attempts to load, and then the system immediately reboots.

Any ideas why this might be?

Nothing, the screen instantly switches off as the PC restarts itself.
