    I'm not going to get into what you are downloading...but it may be part of the problem...or the client itself could be. By default XP will reboot on errors, so if there is a problem with your BitTorrent client then instead of crashing it will reboot.

    Try looking for updates to the client you are using or try a different client. Azureus is a fairly stable client, that I use myself and haven't had any problems with...

    Have you tried running WinXP in Safe Mode?
    If it doesn't run ok in Safe Mode, then...
    Load Knoppix from a [FREE] Knoppix Linux Live CD [made on a PC that's working well], and if that runs just fine, then there's nothing wrong with your hardware [HDD excluded], it's a problem with your Windows environment.
