ESO causing full Windows log out?

Over the last month or so I've been experiencing strange log outs while playing ESO, not from the game itself but my entire windows system almost CTD style. The log outs only appear to happen while in game, never while working with other programs such as Word/Excel or having thing run in the background such as Spotify/Discord. I haven't found any commonality to actions in game either such as crafting/overworld/dungeons, it seems to happen completely at random without warning.

Has anyone else experienced this? Any ideas what might be causing these log outs or how to fix it?

    One possibility is that another program on your PC is causing the entire system to reboot. You can reboot your PC into a selective startup then play ESO to see if that is the case.

    How do I put my computer in selective startup mode?

    It might be an overheating problem? My laptop use to overheat, got a stand with a fan helped a bit. Also eso has a memory leak problem which makes your cpu work harder, might be over worked.
