Hi,
I've had this trouble for a couple of weeks but it seems to be getting worse.
Randomly my computer crashes & restarts, Windows error reporting comes up with a Device driver is causing this crash but no more info than that.
I've checked Device Manager but cannot find any trouble there.
I've run all the Spyware / Trojan / Virus checks as you site mentioned but no avail on stopping these crashes.
Thanks :whistling:

Have you installed any new drivers in those past few weeks?

Yes I installed a DLink print server driver but it was crashing B4 that.
I did get a Popup warning from Trend- Micro internet security about a Network Virus which said I didn't have!
The only other thing I can think of is I update Nero 7 about the time of trouble starting.

Hmm, somethings wrong with your PC somewhere...

What do you mean by crashes?

Like freezes that you can't do anything at all like

Cant press any keys on the keyboard
Mouse cursor is locked

Most Crashes just reboot the machine & some times even reboot during the reboot!
Photoshop again now seems to be OK :whistling:

I've found that System seems to crash anytime I try to Scan System with Trend-Micro Internet Security.
Also checked System Restore setup & found that under drive settings I have 2 "C" drives one being monitored & one offline! I can't understand why there would be two?
