If the CPU was over heating it would either just freeze up or give you a blue screen.

Sounds like she may have the Sasser worm or some other virus. Get AVG from www.grisoft.com and do a check up.

My Computer (right click) > Properties > Advanced > Under "Startup and Recovery" click "Settings" > Under "System failure" un-tick "Automatically restart" > OK.

It wont restart anymore but now whenever it happens it will give you the dreaded blue screen, that wont fix the problem but it will at least give you details about it so you can trace it to its source.

oo i see, it could be the sasser worm virus but i dont know if that actually logs u out. It could just be the computer is set on idel or something and just logs off if the comp isnt being used for a period of time??? Random suggestion.
