As the title states, I was surfing your excellent forums trying to find out why my computer keeps crashing & re-starting; when, sure enough, it crashed and re-started! I had just been reading about viewing event logs, so I did just that and copied the Properties for the two Warnings listed immediately prior to the crash.
I'm running Windows XP Pro with SP3 and can supply copies of these two texts as required. Your assistance greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
Mart.

I've decided to attach the two reports to see if they help anyone out there (???)

On googling the above, it would suggest that I may have a problem with Office 2003 (??) even though I wasn't using it when the crash occurred. Is this familiar to anyone?
