my pc keeps shutting down its not infected with blaster or any of the likely worms when it crashed last time i sent the error report to microsoft and updated the drivers that microsoft said i needed to update but again crashed again last night but when i clicked on the error report sending option nothing happened is there any way i can find the last report to try to send it again ? thanks in advance

No point in sending the report. It does nothing. All that happens is MS collates the 1000s of reports it gets every day and tries to see if patterns emerge.

Give us some more information. System Spec, Windows veriosn, what happened before this started, any error messages etc and we might be able to help...

hi neo,
just read up on this recently and i can give you a rough answer. System failure can be caused by a number of reasons however the most common for these are as follows, faulty memory, hardware or bad windows configuration. I know this isnt much help but maybe if you post the report to the forum, someone may be able to help you further. Good Luck

try searching for LOG, this will probably bring up a whole host of .txt files. Maybe sifting through them to find the one u want is the answer?
