    CPU restarts after executing exe (Windows XP Pro)

    Whenever I download *.exe files, and I try to execute them, the computer immediately restarts upon clicking the icon. I don't have a clue what could cause this, and everything in my computer has been upgraded to new stuff, and is all compatible. Can someone help me?

    I'll hazard a starting "guess." Have you run a good virus scan on the system lately? That seems to be a good place to start before you wonder whether it's a bad RAM stick or some other spider in the wood pile.
