  1. i was browsing through the web opening links and stuff... suddenly my computer froze.... and restarted by itself...
    i knew something was wrong so i waited till windows logged on and was planning to run my antivirus and anti-spywares

    before i could even click on anything
    a window pops up saying that explorer.exe need to be shut down

    and the rest of the screen hangs. so i shut it down. then funny thing is explorer kept on restarting itself and shuttinf itself down.

    its like i shut it down
    then it starts up and i can do normal functions for like 3 sec before the shutdown windows come up again...... its really frustrating. i tried using winows system recovery pt to go back to an earlier working setting but it doesn't seem to work. pls help

    We need more information about your system. What operating system, type of computer? Did you add, or remove any programs, or hardware, before this problem started?
