There's a setting buried in Windows XP that tells your computer to restart when a system error occurs. If you turn off that option, you may solve your automatic reboot problem.


Click Start, then open Control Panel

Click Performance and Maintenance

Click System

Click on the Advanced Tab

Click Settings in the Startup and Recovery section

Uncheck Automatically Restart in the System failure section
