Perhaps your processor/graphics card is overheating? Do you have enough fans in your computer?

Making the claim 'not having spyware or anything' is pretty bold, so make sure you have the good software. Try using Ad-Aware SE Professional, Spybot Search and Destroy, Webroot Spy Sweeper, and the trial version of Trend Micro's PC-Cillin. They are the tools that might help you root out the spyware and crap. PC-Cillin found 6 hidden trojans on my computer when my other software didn't detect it at all. From the looks of it, it sounds like you have a virus, as those are a common symptom.

Just to be sure its not a heat related problem, what are the temps? DO you use Motherboard monitor 5 or anything to monitor them? You would be surprised how hot your computer is, in what you think is a relatively cool room. Your thermal protection shut down temperatures might be set very low too. I think when I first built my computer and was browsing through the BIOS that the CPU shutdown temp was about 65degrees. I get that most of the time when its under about 70-80% load and it rebooted on me a couple of times before I figured out why.

It's possibly not a software or temp problem. A few weeks ago my pc was doing the same thing, and just yesterday my dad was fixing a friend's pc that was doing the same thing. Both times, part of the problem was that one or both of the ram sticks were a bit loose in their slot, and every time the case got nudged it lost contact and crashed the pc. Dunno if this can actually damage anything or I was just lucky, but make sure they are in nice and tight and see what happens. One way of measuring temps is to go into the hardware monitor in the bios, usually under advanced or near where overclock settings are. You could also google the thing orange said or check out your motherboard manufacture's site for a monitor such as ASUS Probe, for asus boards.
