What is windows update.

Question

I had the blaster worm and the spybot worm on my computer. The worms were successfully removed, but the machine was performing terribly. We deleted the partition, created a new partition and reloaded Windows XP. The machine is running great and we were able to access the internet a few times. Then we would successfully connect to an internet site, but when choosing a different site, the machine would reboot. Now the machine reboots as soon as we open internet explorer. What is causing this problem?
