I have been having a problem with Windows going to Blue Screen and then doing a Restart. It happens mainly when we switch users on the computer. I can't see what the Blue Screen says - It all happens so fast. I have run Anti Spyware, Adware and Virus - I don't think that is the problem. I am running XP SP2.

Any One have an Idea. :tazz:

You can turn off the auto restart to get a better look at the bluse screen

Right click My COMPUTER, choose PROPERTIES< choose ADVANCED, choose STARTUP AND RECOVERY settings button, uncheck autorestart

Wait for next crash, report info

Sorry it took so long to reply... I haven't had another crash until today. I did uncheck the autorestart BUT the system restarted by itself anyway. I uninstalled Netscape and that seemed to take care of the problem UNTIL today. Any other suggestions??? I know it would be helpful if I could get the Tech Info off the Blue Screen. :tazz:

Thanks
