Whenever I attempt to move files from the MyDocuments folder, the system reboots. I use WindowsXP.

Thanks for any help.

Sorry, but I just had to laugh when I read your problem! No offense really, and no insensitivity intended! It's just that I have never heard of this happening before!

So what you're saying is that when you try to drag a file from MyDocuments to another destination the computer just reboots? What about copying the file then pasting it to a different destination... same thing happen? How about if you delete a file from MyDocuments... still reboot?

Does this only happen with the MyDocuments folder? Are you able to move files between other folders just fine?

This is really weird, and I really don't have an answer for you as I've never heard of this before. Just trying to get more info. I am very interested in finding out what is causing this.

I have never heard of this either and I have had a computer since 1985! It is when I am in Windows Explorer and I am trying to move files form the hard drive (C:\mydocuments) to a cd. The system simply goes into a reboot as if I hit CtlAltDel. My system is a Gateway 700X with a Pentium 4- 2.4GHz processor, 512k cache, 512 MB RDRAM, 64MB NVIDIA GeForce MX400 AGP Graphics with DVI and TV out. The CD is a 16x/48x DVD Rom Drive and a 40x/12x/48x recordable Rewriteable CDRW.

Thanks.

so it only happens when you try to drag directly to a cd? what if you move the file to a different folder?
what kind of cd burning software are you using?

start > run, type
eventvwr.msc
<enter>

Look under systems and applications for items with red Xs that happened at the SAME time as your problem...list them here.
