My pc has started shutting down on its own accord. I get the same thing as the blaster virus but i have already installed the patch and updated my antivirus months ago, can anyone help.Virus search finds nothing.

Do you mean like restarting randomly?
Check that your PSU fans are working properly because, like mine, there's a possibility that the fans aren't working causing the PSU to overheat and shutting itself down/rebooting.

Make sure you have the auto-reboot on error uncheck in xp (right click on my computer -> properties -> advanced -> startup and recovery -> settings .. uncheck "automatically restart") so you can see a bsod if you get one. If you do post the error. :)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

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!
