When i log into my windows xp pro a message pops up saying that windows has recovered from a serious error so i click close because there is nothing else i can do with that window...but it keeps popping up when i close it and within atleast 5-10mins it will log me off and shut down.

It doesn't completely shut down though it goes to some blue screen saying Windows has shut down to keep your computer from being harmed or from losing memory something like that i cant really remember. On the bottom of that message theres is 2 paragraphs. Can anyone help me with this problem ?
I can only learn what i want to learn.

Try disabling the automatically restart on system failure feature. Then you are able to read what messages appear on the blue screen and post that back here for some one to lol at.


Click Start Button

On the Start Menu click Control Panel

When the Control Panel window opens click on the System icon

The system properties window opens

Click the Advanced tab

In the Advanced tab window locate the Start and Recovery section and press the Settings button

When the settings window opens look for the System failure section

Remove the check mark from the Automatically Restart option

Click OK to Exit

You got a Blue Screen of Death, aka the Windows Stop Error. This happens when there is a problem (usually hardware, but occasionally software) that could harm the computer, so the operating system shuts down to prevent further damage. Do what boopme said and post the BSoD back here.
