curious how you determined the cause of re-booting was fragmented files? Are you running XP? Go to the event log and see if you can get a clue what the cause is.

Post your system specs, including the power supply amps per 12v and 5v rails This should be on a sticker on the outside of the power supply.

Random reboots are usually caused by driver problems, heat or power supply issues. This is the first time I have read "fragmented files" are causing it. :tazz:

You can right click on the event select properties, then go to microsoft help center for more info...Mirosoft knowledge base may (I said may, not will) be helpful. :tazz:

Did the knowledge base at microsoft give any clue about fixing it? I am not familiar with what this is, but someone else may be.

I tried a search of this forum for Error = NaiFiltr.SYS is missing and keep getting errors on the search function (using firefox). I did a google search and there are lots of hits. Give that a try. :tazz:

remember Google is your friend! I found this:
http://www.tek-tips.....cfm?qid=189336

searched for NAIFILTR.SYS on this page. It is all about fixing it. Don't know if it is your fix or not. YOU need to work your way through it. Read it carefully and see if it applies to you. :tazz:

your call. Just be sure to backup your data first. My own experience with that choice is that I have always come though it ok. Format and then re-loading everything is just so time consuming. Good luck! :tazz:

Note the date of that post that suggests it's McAfee VirusScan.

If you suspect it's McAfee, then I suggest you try going to McAfee Support forum. It's very very active, and they can be very helpful.

I'm currently having the same problem, but I don't suspect it to be McAfee, but I'm not ruling anything out just yet! Still researching...
