Windows 7 x64 reboots randomly while playing Warcraft

My windows 7 64bit works fine if ur browsing, emailing, watching a video, but as soon as i start warcraft 3 (DOTA) which doesnt even have high gaming graphics it reboots rite in the middle of the game randomly, it used to work fine a month ago, these random reboots just started. there is NO blue screen, nothing in the event logs just random restarts with no information.

Voltage seems fine - no ups and downs, i have 4gb ddr 3 ram - which works fine? how do i figure out what the problem is? my graphics driver is up to date, there was an update by nvidia daybefore yesterday which i also downloaded hoped it would make the restarts go away, but din help?

any advise?

Use System Restore and choose the restore point before random restarts occured .
