Windows 7: How do I figure out what's causing my computer to freeze and restart?

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

Alright after removing the driver using SPTD I'll open my case and give it a clean and check the fans are working.

I am not overclocking my PC and I've just downloaded hwinfo and found out that my temperature is over 90 degrees

Yeah that's pretty high is the machine isnt loaded, not sure what the exact limit is on your particular CPU but generally when you get around 90-100 degrees the machine will start throttling back the cpu to attempt to control the temp and if it goes beyond this anything can happen as you have seen
