I wouldn't recommend using alt+tab to quit games. Quit them properly.

Are you Overclocking?

-Try running scan disk on "full" scan.

-Check the games/drivers are up to date.

-Be sure you have SP2.

-Check for virus's and malware.

EDIT: If you want to see a report other than it restarting without warning.... Right Click on My Computer > Properties > Select the Advanced tab > Click settings button under Startup and Recovery, then remove the check from the Automatically Restart checkbox.

Hmm ok i'll check on drivers but it only started recently. i should mention I just replaced the power supply but I can't immagine that would have anything to do with it. It does it when I quit the game properly

Ok i desabled the autorebot and the error I got seemd to have something to do with win32k.sys

Stop: 0x000008e if that means anything to anyone

Also if i continue to run these games and suffer these dirty reboots when i exit them will it cause damage to my system? I googled thiz and it looks like this oculd be something that microsoft is aware of but no solution was listed.

Does it display a Blue Screen???

I had a similar problem which was Starforce related (A Copy-Protection Bug)....

I don't know if this is your problem but there is a patch for it HERE.

As i said, i don't think this is your problem....

I found this....

System crashes at win32k.sys is very common. You have a lot of dump reading experience and I believe that you see the a lot of footprint of win32k.sys at the stack trace of the minidumps. It is not the software of win32k.sys.

According to my record, 80% of the problem is related to faulty ram or VID. 20% is related to software such as anti-virus or firewall.

Refer the following cases and they are crashed at win32k.sys Faulty vid http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic35211.html Mini101405-01.dmp 50 (f97dfffe, 00000000, f97dfffe, 00000000) win32k!ttfdSemQueryFontData+7a -> win32k!GreReleaseSemaphore+a

Could be your RAM...
