It might help us if we knew what happened when the system rebooted. Also, what your system's specs are and what software (OS, antivirus, firewalls, etc.) are running as well.

Actually, you might want to use your antivirus and antispyware to scan for malware problems. Just to be on the safe side.

Speaking of safe, try running Uplink in safe mode and see if the problem persists. On second thought, others have had problems with the music in the game. Try turnning off the music first, then if the system reboots on you, try running in safe mode.

isn't it possible that the debug file would tell what happened? perhaps you could show that to someone that knows what they are doing and they might be able to find the problem there?

Probably not, Uplink wouldn't have time to write the file before the system rebooted. Something hardware-related must have happened to his system, or a driver did something the system did not like. Thus, the reboot to clear everything out.
