Am running Windows 2000 and after installing all updates from Microsoft, computer now randomly reboots and then wants to dump memory. I also get a DR. Watson Fatal Error message with start up. Can't post HijackThis log because computer shuts down window when I click on a submit button. Have run every scan suggested on this site and they all come up empty. I have plenty of memory and just installed more 2 weeks ago. Want to erase Windows 2000 and start over with Windows XP. Will this work and can someone please tell me how to do this? Any help is much appreciated

Hi jenni, welcome to GTG! <_<

I'm confused. Do you want to repair your Windows 2000 installation, or install XP? Do you have any data that you still need on this system?

Sorry, Want to clean it out and start over, nothing I need to keep. Just curious what could have caused it to do this. Don't want it to happen again. This is the first time I've had to do it myself. Thanks.

Really hard to guess what might have caused it. Here's a good guide for performing a "clean install' of XP:
