EH?i havent got A clue what your on about mate. :confused:
he's asking if you just installed service pack 2, because some programs cause windows to restart after the installation of service pack 2. you can try uninstalling service pack 2 then uninstalling the camera and other things that are causing the computer to restart, reinstall sp2 and then reinstall the programs

no what are you talking about memory dump isn't a virus, it's a kind of overflow. Here is a definition of dump from webopedia. But you don't have to reinstall XP that would take around 30minutes or so a waste of time

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
