Also run a anti-virus program. You amy have to download a few programs to get rid of all the spyware and viruses. This is normal as ther is no one solution once you have a problem. You can fin a free anti-virus program at www.avast.com This is a very good program for fighting viruses. You can also get AVG anti-virus. Try Spyware destroyer also. Usually it take a combination of these programs to find and get rid of the problem. Also do a clean disc and defrag on your harddrive to clean up any problems left behind by the spyware and viruses. I hope this information helps you with your problem.
There could be several things wrong but with the information provided, I am going to say that you have a virus and/or spyware. Run a complete scan on system with both antivirus and spyware remover. Rid of all spyware. If you have Limewire, delete it and reboot. This should stop the computer from rebooting.

I did a quick Google on Peoplepal Toolbar and i get this from a spyware warnings site:-
"PeoplePal Toolbar is not a virus or a Trojan. PeoplePal Toolbar is an adware application and may generate extra pop-up ads while using Internet Explorer. This kind of application generally comes bundled with another program, which usually discloses the fact that it is ad-supported."
Just looks like it generates popups - Have a look in Add/Remove programs to see if theres a listing to uninstall it. also , just go to C:/Program Files and find the folder and delete - No coming back for it then!!
My proper solution however , is get a decent security suite program as the one you have is clearly not doing much. Quick analysis below
Norton Internet Security - Slows down system , uses lots of resources
Bitdefender Internet Security - Lightweight , uses hardly any resources , cheap to buy each year , can use 1 subscription on 3 pcs
Kaspersky - Very good protection , one of the best but is quite expensive
Eset Smart Security (formerly Nod32) - My personal recommendation , subscription prices arent bad , it self updates etc , i personally use it and have NEVER had a virus. Bundle this with Spybot search and destroy (which is free) and your computer is unstoppable!! - Well maybe not , but those two are what i use and my system has never had a virus. Sure theres been the odd spyware but spybot always gets rid of it
HIjack This is mostly used as a logging tool to help identify adaware. it will allow you to send the log file to an expert who will then be able to tell you what to look out for. as with all adware removal programs, you have to look over the results to make sure you are not getting rid of something valid before blindly accepting all their recommendations.
My two personal favorites are: Spybot S&D found at www.safer-networking.org/ Ad Aware, found at www.Lavasoft.com
this is what sounds like a trojan or for of spyware, probably disguised as a screen saver.
If you have no anti virus installed download this programme for free
If you have no anti spyware programme download this for free.
on the laptop press Ctrl, Alt & delete or right click on task bar to get to the task manager and on the processes tab look for the scrensaver.exe or similair that is running, click on it and press end process.
this should allow you to work with windows
Install the programmes, then go to system restore tab in my computer>right click>properties>system restore tab and click 'turn off system restore'(this will stop any virus or spyware backups reinstalling).
Run both the programmes and remove any spyware or virus.
If it still appears you may have to uninstall it safe mode, which is press F8 key on start up and select 'start windows in safe mode' and run the antivirus and spyware programmes again.
