Downloading is not hard on the CPU, infact it uses little. Data is just transferred to the hard disk.

Before blaming your motherboard or other hardware try these :-

Right-click My Computer
Click Advanced then Startup and Recovery

Now uncheck the Automatically restart tick box

The next time Windows encounters a major error you'll get a Blue screen of Death rather than just a restart - this often gives you the name of the file thats gone wrong.

That will help incase this doesn't work.

Now when you start your torrent program, use ctrl-alt-delete to enter your task manager. Click the processes tab up top, and look for the name of your torrent client. When you find it in there, right click it, and set it's priority to low.

I would guess it is using too much ram and causing your comp to restart. BTclients use ALOT of ram.

Good luck and let me know how that works!
