Windows XP has a default setting to "Restart on failure"

Right click on "My Computer" and select Manage.
Expand the Event Viewer category and look through each of the three
sub-categories for the red flagged error records. The date and time
of these should correspond to your restarts. Double click on an
error record to see the details of the error.

You can change this restart behavior if you want.

Click Start, Settings, Control Panel, System, Advanced

In the Startup and Recovery section, click on the "Settings" button
to open the Startup and Recovery window.

In the System Failure section, uncheck "Automatically restart",
Click "Apply", "OK"

After that change the computer will no longer restart when a system
failure occurs. Instead it will probably throw up a "Blue Screen Of
Death" with a STOP error message and then halt completely, requiring
a manual power off and restart (or reset if it has a hardware reset
switch).

But the contents of the STOP error message will give a specific clue
as to the underlying cause of the problem.

Mine does the same, at least explorer crashes and restarts, I don't worry
about it - but you need to change the date on your clock, currently you're 1
day ahead of everybody else.
If you're machine reboots, then I'd suggest looking at the following (in
order of what I think is important, since you don't supply much info. I'll
list things I think are suitable)

1) Uninstall any programs that you don't need.
2) Get a good firewall, to stop intruders (many are free, use google)
3) Get a good anti-virus product, read other posts to find out what to use.
4) Get an Anti-Spyware package (either adaware, or spybot, or both)
5) Run disk checking utils.
6) If you're still getting problems the either
a) reinstall your OS
b) live with it.

I live with it.

Hi
Could you please adjust your Time Zone settings?
You are posting in the future.Please follow the advice below. Don't just
look at your clock
then your watch and think there is nothing wrong with it,there is.

1. Double click the time in the lower right corner of the system tray.
2. In the dialog box that pops up select the *Time Zone* tab.
3. Use the drop down menu to select the correct entry for "your" TIME ZONE
4. Also, Check the box marked Daylight Savings Time.
5. Then click OK to save it.

Hopefully someone will be along shortly to help you with your question, but
only if you
correct your time settings.

For some reason, when I open some of my desktop folders XP crashes, and
restarts.

Does anyone know why this would be?

Thanks
