Mine is a HP small form factor.
See enclosed pics.
Not sure where it was/is, but felt around and felt slight airflow after turning on.


It was REALLY dusty though (see before & after pics).
I've never dusted it in the 4 years I've had it.
Could it have been overheating right after startup though?

YES! a computer can overheat just after startup.
Computers should be cleaned several times a year. How often depends on several things.



Examples:
How dusty is the computer room.
Is the intake air have filters. Then the filters should be cleaned as needed. A visual inspection should give you a good idea if cleaning is needed.
Pet air is also a problem.


With a little bit of research you will find intake filters. They also make special brushes and blowers for clean the inside of computers.

Well after blowing my computer out with canne4d air it has been running over 5 hours and no crashes.
I'm going to test it some more overnight and tomorrow.
Will get back to you.


Thanks guys.
Especially you Megahertz07.

You're welcome.
It was REALLY dusty.
I don't like compressed air as it doesn't take the dust out. It moves the dust from one place to the other.
I use a vacuum cleaner. Some people say it can give static discharges. Here in Brazil, where the humidity is normally high, we don't have static discharges using a vacuum cleaner. Even if it gets charged, it's quite simple to connect the vacuum tube to the computer case.

Download Downloads - Open Hardware Monitor
Expand to C:\Program Files (x86)\HardwareMonitor
Execute OpenHardwareMonitor.exe.
Under options set to run on Windows start.
Right click on Temperatures - CPU package - Mark Show in tray - Show in gadget

Well it ran for 15 hours and did fine then it crashed/restarted on it's own.
It usually does when I have my Firefox open with 15+ tabs of both youtube and 15+ of amazon and am also playing a video on mpc-hc.
So I restarted and then it crashed/restarted 1 hour later.
So this time I just played a video on mpc-hc and it still crashed within 5 minutes.
So I don't think it's a conflict anymore, unless it's the propietary codecs that mpc-hc uses.


I will download the monitor u linked to and check out the temperature and get back.


thanks

Can't see anything wrong. Only thing is that the disk is quite full.
Clean it up using CCleaner - https://download.ccleaner.com/ccsetup545.exe

On options - Monitoring - unmark everything.
Analyze - Run cleaner
