    Before posting HJT logs, you should read this thread: http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic50981.html.

    you computer may also be suffering from bsods. to prevent auto restart, go to System Properties->Advanced->Startup and recovary settings->Uncheck Auto Restart.

    Also, if there are any dump files in "%systemroot%\minidump", zip the latest 7 and post them here.

    Your HJT log may well need to be looked at, but first you have to get those system crashes diagnosed (A crash is not the same as a BSOD. A BSOD is a crash with a blue screen error message. A crash is just a crash.)

    Post a collection of approximately 5 minidumps as an attachment in this thread to be looked at.

    When done, by all means come back to the Security and the Web forum and have your HJT checked, AFTER reading the thread entitled READ: Follow these instructions BEFORE posting your HJT log.

    Regards,
    Spike
