My PC keeps shutting and re-booting.

When it restarts I get " windows has recovered from a serious error"

I know this is not much to go on, but I welcome suggestions on how to fix this.

I have XP Home.

I run Norton corporate ant virus every day.

I use spysweeper from webroot and ewido every day.

windows update is on automatic.

Please go to Start...Run...and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter.

In the left hand pane, left click once on the word "System" - then check for errors in the right hand pane. When you find one, right click on it and select "Properties".

What you're looking for is a series of numbers in hexidecimal form. They'll look sorta like this: 0x0000007b (followed by even more numbers). Sometimes there will also be a filename mentioned in this error - please let us know the numbers and the file name.

Also, you can search your hard drive for "*.dmp" (without the quotes). If you find any of these files, please post back and I can give you a link that describes how to read them.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
