yeah, i'll get straight to the point instead of annoying you with blabber... which is what i'm doing.. ok, so i'm playing warcraft 3... 15 minutes or so later.. boom. my computer restarts and then when it loads back up, it says that it has recovered from a critical error. the same type of thing happens when i do a virus scan. (i use Norton) whats got me stumped, is that its not constant. sometimes the scan will be open for a couple seconds.. and it happens. other times a few minutes, and sometimes (get this) it will complete the scan, and i close the window.. and then it happens.. i don't get whats going on here!!.. oh yeah, i also reformatted my computer when this started happening before hoping to cure the problem.. but the saaaaaame thing is happening... any thoughts, ideas or questions?
