    50C while idle is quite warm for a AMD (is it over clocked??) and having safety shut off temp set to 110C is way too high, lower it to about 65-70C

    Its guess you have a heat problem, check the cpu heatsink

    could be a virus. quite a few viruses can cause reboots.
    your cpu temp seems ok so all the information is so far pointing towards it being a virus.
