This happened to me. It ended up that my hard drive was going bad. I ran the diagnositc provided by the manufacturer and sure it enough it was bad.

Got a new HD and the reboot problem went away.

The hard disk that went out on me was less than a month old. Go to the manufactures home page and download their diagnostic utility and see what the results are. Takes less than 5 minutes....

Try running the defrag in safemode, this should disable all background progs and enable the defrag to run without any interruptions, also Try - Right Click 'My Computer'/Properties/Advanced/Start Up and Recovery. Remove the tick from System Failure/Automatic Restart. This should enable you to see exactly which prog is causing the prob by giving you a Error Message.

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
