PC automatically rebooting

  1. Hi,

    Recently had a problem with my XP build randomly rebooting.
    I believe the problem could be due to some windows updates which were installed, but this is unconfirmed.

    If anyone could take a look at the mini dump which was created and decipher it then I would be very grateful.

    Cheers,
    Dodge

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    All your minidumps crash at SYMEVENT.SYS. This is part of your Symantec/Norton security product. It is a known issue on some systems/configurations.

    Try updating the software. If that doesn`t help, uninstall your Symantec/Norton product and try using a different security product.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
