When my computer is set to Standby, it immediately restarts. If I restore to a prior time, it works for a while but then reverts to restart after standby. Could this be a virus that my virus scan has not caught?

Thanks - Removed member's email address

Try updating your video drivers first - it's a 90% fix for Standby/Hibernation problems.

Did you update your video driver?

After updating the video drivers, the problem persists.

This is a poser! Try checking your Event Viewer for messages around the time of the shutdown/reboot. To do this, go to Start...Run...and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter.

To view the messages, click on an entry in the left hand pane and look at the right hand pane for the information. Double clicking on and entry in the right hand pane will open up that particular message.

Do this for each of the entries in the left hand pane and let us know what you find. (FWIW - the most likely place for this will be in the System category or the Application category).

As you said, only System and Applications had many items. Applications had mostly "Information."
Around the time the problem first occurred, System had the error message "CDrom0 has a bad block." This message appeared many times over several days and then stopped appearing.
Another error message around that time was "The netcard driver failed query for OID_GEN_LINK_SPEED."
I don't know just what to look for, but those messages seemed to be of the most interest. There were hundreds of other non-error messages that did not seem relevant.

Try accessing your CD-ROM (with and without media in it), then check the Event Viewer for errors. The error could have been a bad CD, or it could be another problem.

Also, you may want to update your network drivers due to the error displayed about that.

Network drivers have been updated and I did have a bad CD.

I have decided to use Hibernate instead of Standby and ignore the problem.

Thanks for your help.

Frankly, I prefer Hibernation to Standby - but a problem with one usually indicates a problem with the other.

The only other suggestions that I have are:

1) Run SFC.EXE /SCANNOW from the Run dialog - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/43051/how-to-use-sfcexe-to-repair-system-files/
2) Do a repair install of Windows (it'll leave your programs and files intact) - http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm
