Windows XP machine restarts ONLY when connected to Internet--Please Help

Recommended Posts

I have a Gateway Windows Xp machine and it works great, until you connect to the internet. then it shuts itself down and restarts. I have Run malwarebytes and got 2 trojans that it cleaned ( i guess). When i ran the scan again, it was clean. Prior to that I had run the chckdsk /r and sfc /scannow. I also used the Windows Repair Disk to repair the installation. Nothing is working, please help me. I used a USB Rosewill Wireless adapter to connect to my home router and I also tried direct Ethernet.

I dont know if this is malware or hardware or what :(
