Hello group, while browsing this forum, my puter decided to re-boot all on it's own. What's up with that?

that means your system had a "critical" error and your PC is set to automatically reboot when it comes by a critical error..
If you want to find out what the error was about next time, then do this : right click on my computer > properties > Advanced tab > under startup & recovery, select "settings" and uncheck the box next to "automatically restart" .. next time an error occurs, it will show you the BSOD instead of just rebooting..
but if you are still wondering what it was about, then you can check the Event viewer, a service on windows that logs every application, system errors etc..
To reach this, go to your control panel> administrative tools > and open event viewer.. look under the "System" and it should show an error marked with a Red X , and that is most probably why your computer rebooted by itself..
I hope that helps

Thanks BW - it's DCOM errors.

Make sure that you do the first part that Blackwar suggest & disable the auto restart on error so you can see for sure what the error is.
Hope all goes well

In trying to update NAV today, I got the same message as you "make sure disk is not full". I was about to reformat to fix this, but I guess I'll wait a while if this problem is experienced by anyone else.

I just re-installed NAV and tried to get an update and i'm getting the same message.

Me as well. I had problems this morning with a program not wanting to run and did a system restore to get things working again. I wonder if there is a conection like with lynchknot?

I hope NAV fixes the problem soon 'cause I've got no protection. Well i'm not opening mail or sharing files at least.

Here's a SS of my critical errors. Will someone advise me on what to do? There was no CD rom in. I did forget to take a CDrw disk out of the RW drive. I have Nero installed if that had anything to do with it. Thanks

someone here said xp has cant see over 40gigs or somthing like that
can you copy a 3 gig file to another directory and see if you get any hd errors?
xp giving a blue screen error over diskspace is an urgent matter
did you check for viruses?
it has to be a virus or a hd partition problem
there really isnt much else it could be
make sure you can still add large files to the hd
and do the online virus scan
how big are the hd's in question?

I got another blue screen trying that antivirus check. I'll try it again now. I just installed this XP pro last week into one 80GB HD.
No partitions. I'm using 5.2 gigs now.
