Hey guys,

Whenever i am doing stuff on the internet (usually using JAVA) my computer will randomly shut down,it will automatically restart, then in the startup process it will restart again etc. until i shut my computer down completely. Then i have to let it sit for a while until i can use it again. Some times the browser will just shut down but usually the whole computer. Sometimes an error message will appear on my desktop after. it is labeled "HS_ERR_PID(random#)" if you would like to see this please tell me.

The HS_ERR_PID error is definitley referring to a problem with your install of Java Runtime or a problem with whatever java-based application you are running when it occurs.

There should be a log file of the same name (HS_ERR_PID #.log) created when the error occured, containing details about the problem. Off-hand I don't know the log-file's default location but the Windows search tool should reveal it.

I've seen only two cures for this. One is to update your JRE, or a full recovery/re-install of Windows.

Or uninstall JRE and avoid using anything that needs it if a complete re-install does not appeal!
