If I understand you correctly, when you open Warcraft III, your computer automatically restarts.

One thing you can do is update to the latest graphics drivers:

Drivers & Support | GAME.AMD.COM

Do you use the Windows Key at all in game? If you do, you could be accidently hitting the correct set of keys (Windows, Right, Right, Up, Up) and restarting. There are ways to disable the key while in game.

Other than that I would need a more detailed description of exactly what happens.
