Windows randomly crashes while using video converters.

I've used two converters so far, both with the same results: Jodix and Videora. I click "One Click Transcode" on Videora and the video starts to convert to MP4. At random, with no warning the computer restarts itself. Sometimes it does it at 50%, sometimes at 15%. Every once in a while it will look like it's going to finish then crash right before it does. It's getting very frustrating, because I can only download videos in MP4 format or else I can't use them because I can't convert them.

Anybody having similar problems, or have a fix for this?

Okay, so I did a few more test runs and it does NOT crash randomly. It crashes at different percents because I'm trying it with different sized files. On the same file, it crashes at the same spot every time.

It will complete smaller files.

So, I think it has sometimg to do with how much time it takes (after a certain amount of runtime, it crashes)

It shouldn't do so. It maybe the file causing the problem. Is it a downloaded file or ripped from a DVD? What format is the orignal file in if downloaded .mov, .avi, etc.?

The files are downloaded from LimeWire. They are usually in .avi format, but sometimes .mpg.
