Hi,
While restoring a computer for a friend I have run into a problem. Any time I attempt disk cleanup to "compress old files" the system (Emachines 3080) automatically reboots itself. It has also rebooting automatically as soon as I start up Windows on at least two occasions. Any help/solutions are greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Ryan

can you boot into the safe mode? Can you view the event log and look for probable causes there? Go to my computer, right click select manage and go to the event viewer. Look for the red x events. When you find them, right click select properties. This will display the error message and also have a link that will take you to uncle bills knowledge base (M$), look for possible solutions there.

The Knowledge base wasn't very helpful, but the event viewer netted this error "Microsoft Category 102 Error 1003" anyone familiar with this?

Thanks

STOP- OxOOOOOO7F
