    I haven't checked the MiniDumps (or mini txts !)

    But just uninstall daemon tools (I've seen this issue related to daemon tools many, many times)

    hi kimsland thanks for the reply. i've just uninstalled it and the rebooting wasn't gone. since i installed that thing the symptom didn't go away. i did my research about the dumps and i think it's the drivers that are causing it but i am not sure. i'll really appreciate your help if you help me to understand these mini txt dumps and also im still trying to remember what i did before i'd installed that daemon thing. many thanks for the reply.

    Well I'd prefer you supply the DMP files themseles, because your txt files are not full analysis

    Inside the 4 Minidumps (Note: No.3 was corrupt, could not open)
    Please run Memtest on your Ram

    By the way what AntiVirus software are you using?
    And do you have any virtual software like Daemon Tools, if so remove it.

    Try Free Antivirus like Avast or Avira

    ok i'll try that memtest thing. daemon tools already remove. For anti virus i'm using nod eset smart security.

    I'd suggest updating to Xp SP3 as well

    Please un-install Eset NOD32 anti-virus (seeming it faulted twice)
    Then restart

    Then install one of these Free Antivirus softwares Avast or Avira

    Then update it

    Then run a full scan

    It will be interesting to know if a Virus is found
