Just a thought, but if it's a new PC then you might have to go check Windows updates and set them to anything but automatic. Perhaps the "Notify me but don't install" setting. Windows could be doing updates in the background and needs a restart each time. If this is persistent every day and every time, then I'm not too sure. Maybe not enough memory, but most new PC's have lots. Hopefully it's not a virus.

what is that a temperature of?
graphics card? if so thats ok

but it restarting your computer does seem to be a sign of overheat, try removing one of the side panals of your computer (providing your on a desktop) and try cooling it down more with fans
