The title pretty much says it all.

I got Win XP Pro lately, and it works amazingly well, sort of. All of a sudden, when im in the middle of doing stuff, it reboots! It doesn't ask me or anything. Any help at all?

Make sure you get all the updates at the windows site. My first thought is a malicious script running in IE or OE. I'd suggest a getting your security up-to-date with a good anti-virus program and a firewall utility. Don't know if this will help, but it can't hurt.

AUTOREBOOT

Start\settings\control panel\system\Startup and recovery option..
Advanced tab/3rd settings button (under startup and recovery)
uncheck 2nd last box "AUTOMATICALLY RESTART" under system failure.

Windows XP have a so called Autorestart fuction or a so called memory dump! As noted above you can turn that off..

Also check ur event viewer..2 locate some errors or warnings..



start\settings\control panel\administrative tools\EVENT VIEWER

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!
