    Ragzinc... post what the error code is. I'm just curious because i recently had a similar problem, along with a couple of my friends and my parents. I think it might be klez related but have done a search for klez files using symantecs klez removal program. I think that there's a new strain of the virus out right now.

    what is auto reboot supposed to do exactly?
    what purpose does it serve?
    mine is turned on and this never happenned.
    it's only supposed to do it on a system crash so if it's rebooting then something is still wrong
