I was browsing the Internet when my computer suddenly restarted and began a cycle of reboots. According to the one-minute-timered dialog box that appears, shutdown was initiated by NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM and the exception is 1073741482.
I use Windows XP and can't get logged in within the one minute, so my only hope was to put my comp into safe mode, which is running normally.
I have HijackThis already installed, but it won't run when I click on it. My standard antivirus program is Avast, which I'm running now - again, in Safe Mode. It's all I've got.
I have no internet access ('cause I'm in Safe Mode) from that computer, so downloading to that computer will be tricky, as will posting logs. I've been meaning to buy a flash drive, though - can I use that to transfer to/from a computer in Safe Mode? I'd like to be able to save some of my files in case the worst happens and I can't fix the damn thing.
