If it's the CPU overheating it will most likely restart.
What will usually happen is windows will blue screen with some random error and the default behavior is to immediately reboot.

If you believe it's the CPU overheating, I'd put thermal paste between the CPU and the HeatSink.
But I'm suspicious that it's taking 2 hours to shutdown, usually thermal problems are pretty immediate when under any significant CPU load.
As I said above I would verify what the issue is.

There are a whole host of other things that could cause a reboot, from PSU problems to RAM and bad components on the MB.

i have checked the processor heat sink that becomes very warm during running. is it normal?

Yeah modern processors will get so hot touching the heat sink will burn you.
under no load the processor is pushing ~50 degrees C and they won't shut down until they are over 80 degrees C
That's why I said load up a temperature monitor and check what the actual temperature is.

i tried installing 2 temperature monitor but none of them got installed. Today i noticed that when i open task manager and move the window of the task manager with my cursor rapidly, the cpu usage of Pc goes to 85% then after 2 seconds returns back to 0 (when i stop moving the cursor and window). wtf is wrong with my pc?
should i try a system reinstall?

i decided to reinstall windows xp. put the cd into the cd rom (had to buy a new coz my pc wasn't having) then did a format to c drive. But now i am failed to install windows to my PC. It shows a blue screen with some 0x0000 and 000 something codes and physical memory dump creation done.

Could be many things, bad RAM, Bad capacitors on mobo, bad power supply, bad HDD etc etc.
Have a look at the capacitors on the mobo and see if they are bulging or leaking, if not then really the only option is to swap out components one at a time with known good ones.

I've had processors go bad and bad power supplies give that particular error as well.

As Hood mentions, it's now a matter of swapping components to find the bad one.

i am looking for a new "used pc for the lathe"
no luck with the error. Rather than replacing the ram and hd, it is better to have another cpu ( one spare may help sometimes)

JAs I think you need to find a good computer that works Then LEAVE IT ALONE. 

Just a thought, (;-) TP

i like that way too. but the route is expensive (almost double)
i bought this cpu 2 years ago for 80$ when i begun my project. wasn't a bad deal for that amount. (after all it went through several sparks and the on board parallel port is also fried)
wish me luck for a good deal again. (why scotch is so much popular btw? I guess you can tell about it easily as you tell about mach)
