Windows 7 critical problem ?

  Binnacle 13:20 16 Dec 2009

Over the last couple of weeks i have intermittantly received the following message on start up.
" Windows has encountered a critical problem and will restart automatically in one minute.Please save your work now" .
Any ideas what this might be ?
I am running Windows 7 home premium and NIS 2010.

Try running a system file scan. Open the command prompt as administrator, and type sfc /scannow at the C: prompt then hit Enter
