My laptop has been restarting randomly for months (I've only had it about 6). I don't think that it's windows doing it to update, I would get a message from windows right?

THe restarts are pretty infrequent (once every couple of weeks), and the only trigger that I can manage to find involves me charging it. If I unplug it and plug it back in it will sometimes happen ten minutes later, but not all the time; like i said it is an infrequent problem.

It doesn't bother me too much in its current state, but I don't want it to get worse or turn into a bigger problem. I have contracted Win7 antivirus virus (removed) and a tdss redirect wirus that came along with it (in the process of removing).

thanks for any help

1) Go to System Properties - Advanced - Startup & Recovery Settings and uncheck "automatically restart"

2) The fact that you apparently have malware on your system is almost certainly directly related to your problem. I suggest you post in the Am I Infected forum on this site.
