It was a blue screen that read - "A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer" There was some more text but i couldn't get it all before my computer restarted. The only thing i can think that MAY have caused this was downloading new drivers for my ATI Radeon 5450. (this was hours before...) I've run a few virus scans with Avast! antivirus and nothing.
