i have windows XP pro and basically, when i try to LAN a game with my brother (who lives in a different state than me) using Hamachi i get booted to my desktop in the middle of the game with a system prompt indicating that my system will need to shutdown and restart in 60 seconds. Hamachi is a program that creates a VPN, which makes it seem as if i'm directly connected with my brother's computer through a router so that we're able to LAN.
if you read the link i've provided, i've done multiple scans for malware and viruses but i was told it doesn't seem like they're issues now. i seem to only get that NT AUTHORITY system shutdown message when i'm LANing with my brother and randomly during the middle of the game. i'm able to access and surf the web fine without any trouble and my computer doesn't have that shutdown message if it's left alone either... just when i'm LANing with my brother.
the issue is that i've LANed with my brother with the same game for awhile using this Hamachi program and never had any issues like this before. i haven't gone to any weird questionable sites or installed any questionable programs either recently so i don't know what the problem is.
some people were telling me that maybe the problem is coming from my brother's computer (because we were connected via the Hamachi client)? i'm not sure... but then why would MY computer restart and not his?
any help is greatly appreciated!!
