Hi all, Please help. My pc keeps rebooting itself without warning after a random time whenever I am downloading anything. It never crashes when I'm browsing. I use Mozilla, but it happens in IE too, so can't be that. I tried rolling back to SP1 but no luck. I called my vendor who said connection was fine and must be my pc. But I just cannot work out why it only crashes when I'm downloading. I haven't installed any new hardware recently. I reset my modem (which is cable - 1mb). I've checked for viruses and spyware. I use Zonealarm and AVG and clear spyware via Spybot and Adware. This is really doing my head in. Please someone must have had the same prolem as me at some point.
PC spec: AMD 3200 XP 512mb RAM 256mb Radeon GC 200gb HDD 1mb Terayon Cable Modem (USB)
alan227 - Just tried looking in event view and seems I have a problem with that too. If i click on Apllication, Security, etc, a message says "Unable to complete operation on Security (etc). The interface is unknown". This happens all logs, so i dunno whats up there.
Skyver - I tried saving to different folders. Only have 1 partition. I will do a full HDD check overnight. As for AVG, everything is on. Its also set to search in all infectable files.
Sorry I've not replied to ur answers. I had to go away last week. Anyway, I've done a System File Check and nothing happened, nothing showed up, no results or anything. Got event viewer working and there are alot of "tcpip - 4226" warnings around the time it crashes. but I dunno if this explains anything cos I don't really understand it. I was wondering if reinstalling xp again over the top would help. Can I do this without losing anything on my pc, games, etc.
