Re: shuts down by itself/restarts with safe mode prompt
1. You have bit torrent set to shut down the computer when the download
2. Your computer is crashing upon shutdown (bit torrent?)
3. Set your computer to give you a blue screen when it does #2 above.

Go to My Computer | Properties | Advanced | Start Up and Recovery
Remove the check from Automatically Restart
Windows Desktop Experience
