Symptom: PC will spontaneously reboot.
There are SOME things I can do that I know will generally trigger it, but there are other times (reading email), it'll just crash/reboot. On occasion, system also blames flash.ocx. I've uninstalled flash, and it'll seem a little more stable for a while, but then it'll REBOOT again.
The last crash prompted a Dr. Watson which said... "The instruction at 0x7c910c27 referenced memory at 0x00146df5. The memory could not be "read".
I am also unable to reinstall my Norton Internet (firewall/antivirus). I've tried to do the free virus scans on both McAfee (crashed the browser...and/or REBOOTS), and Symantec (says the Active-X won't download). I spent 3 hours w/ Symantec who gave up basically. On the rare occasion that adaware will run, it just shows the typical cookies, nothing serious. Spybot will show clean.
Anyone have ANY ideas??? Is there a dead spot in my memory? Is there perhaps some odd virus? A bad spot on my disk (though, after some reboots, system will do a chkdsk). EEK!
