For almost a month, I have been hit by some random restarts of my XP Home machine. Most of the time, I receive a Blue screen error that states something along the lines of "Dumping physical Memory to disk". I tried uninstalling all the software that might have caused the problem but the issue continues. I cannot even use System Restore to fix the problem. Also, some of these restarts bring up a window that states that "The System is being restarted. This action was issued by NT Authority/System" and it counts down from 1 minute. I can stop it if I do a "shutdown -a" command in the command prompt. I attempted a system restore to late August and the restore failed. I have scanned my computer with MalwareBytes Anti-Malware and found nothing.

I attempted a MBAM scan in safe mode after doing a definitions update in normal mode. MBAM found 3 things but before it could complete the scan, the program crashed and would not restart at all. I also received (IN SAFE MODE) the same window stating that the computer is being restarted.

I ran MEMTEST today but nothing was found. Any advice?
