Default Stumped. Need help bad.

Ok I have a weird problem with my comp. I have unwanted restarts. But not random restarts..

A week or two ago I did a system recovery on my computer. I couldnt play Americas Army because I had spyware. I got fed up with it and did the system recovery. I have had no problems sense then.

But now, whenever I open Windows Media, it brings me to now playing, its fine. When I go to library, I get a restart. Not like a restart when you to turn off computer, restart. It doesn't shut anything down. I get a black screen and my computer boots up fine. I need help. Please, anyone?

Thanks for taking your time to read that. I hope I get this resolved.

check event viewer and post errors, also in case its doing a quick warm boot... disable in the startup/recovery tab in system properties the box checked restart for the system failure section. Post the errors here.

but if I open it and quickly click a song or movie to play it is fine. Its been like this before I disabled all those. Anything else?
