errors"

Something is causing a "system failure" class error on the computer.
This could be a hardware defect, a malfunctioning device driver, or a
misbehaving application program, or even a defective Windows
component.

The change suggested by "Digiti" will stop the reboots. However they
will probably be replaced with a "Blue Screen Of Death" STOP error
message. In that case the contents of the STOP error message,
including the codes, will be a direct clue as to what the underlying
cause is.

Post the information from the STOP error back here if you need further
advice or assistance.

Good luck
