Window XP Rebooting Unexpectedly


N

needhelpbad

Apparently, XP has a function that reboots the system
whenever it feels the system is in fear or disaster. It's
doing this because of some software I added. But when I
try to remove the software, it keeps rebooting before I
finish. I know there is a way to cut this off in the
registry file by simply changing 1 to 0 or vice versa, but
I forgot where this is done. Could someone point me in the
right direction?

Hello
It could be the result of a virus, to my knowledge XP has no function to do
that, or maybe my system has not been that much in fear or distress.....;)

To stop the shutting down provided you have time
Start>Run>(type) cmd>(type) shutdown -a>Enter

Have you checked for the sasser worm

Download, Update & Run Ad-Aware

Download and run a virus scan to check against yours.(free)

Right click on MY COMPUTER > Properties > Advanced >
Start up and Recovery > settings

Under SYSTEM FAILURE uncheck the box that says

AUTOMATICALLY RESTART

Then you will have a blue screen with information instead of the abrupt
restart.

Hope this helps.
