Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Dfrg\BootOptimizeFunction]
"Enable"="Y"
"LcnStartLocation"="11770759"
"LcnEndLocation"="11952932"
"OptimizeComplete"="Yes"
"OptimizeError"=" "

it restarted again last night, but only after a few minutes when I turned the computer off.

Very good. :whistling:

Please keep that file as we can use it as a backup.

Then copy te part in bold below and save it as bootdefrag.reg
Set filetype to "All files"

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Dfrg\BootOptimizeFunction]
"Enable"="N"


Doubleclick that file and confirm you want to merge it with the registry.

Reboot and let me know if that helped.

Regards,

Didn't change anything. The computer still reboots after a minute or so when I turn it off.

To improve the quality of help on this subject I suggest that you start a thread in the OS forum:

Give them a link to this topic so they can see what we have tried:

Just an update, I rescanned the computer again and still found nothing. I followed the advice in this article: http://www.microsoft...el_02may13.mspx and none of them worked for me (uncheck Automatic Restart under Startup and Recovery in My Computer, I don't have Roxio's Easy CD Creator, and I updated my BIOS). I looked at my Event Viewer again and noticed there Userenv warning whenever I "turned off" my computer. Don't know if its relevant or not.
