My machine has been restarting itself and returning the above message. I am running XP pro. When it restarts everything seems to be fine again (until the next time) Is this something to be very concerned about and is there anything I can do about it?
Its critical for a smooth running system,and I would suggest that you solve your problem with the advice given, but I am just to lazy to do anything about it at present.Living with it, but perhaps a system crash imminent (;o(
huggyg71 Have done all that you advised! There were loads of red x's in the event viewer but when I connected to microsoft it said "no user action" so I have just left it. I have now d/l the latest version of spybot and that has picked up 12 nasties which the earlier version had missed. I ran the old version prior to d/ling the new one..that's how I know.
sometimes you may see errors listed with the text stating something like
'the following program failed faulting application example.exe'
then when you view the link it says no user action is required.
try working your way through all errors listed anyway and see if there are any with solutions avaiable.
if you have never been in event viewer before you may have listings going way back.what i would do now is clear the lists.right click the system and application tabs and select 'clear list' (you can save the current list if you want to) this at least will give you a clean slate and errors from now on will be listed and easier to find.
if you have unticked automatically restart the next time you get a critical error you should be presented with a blue screen and an error.make sure to note it down exactly.
