    Hey guys my computer has restarted 3 times in the last hour and I was wondering if any of you guys could help me out. After every random restart, I would get the window telling me that windows has just recovered from a serious error and if I want to send the information. Well, I clicked around and it said these two files were the culprit.

    C:\Temp\WER6f90.dir00\Mini040308-02.dmp
    C:\Temp\WER6f90.dir00\sysdata.xml

    I was wondering what can I do to stop these random restart. Thanks

    Run some system tools and diagnostics to test components and do maintenance first. What may cause these re-boots are some viruses and faulty power supply units. You can go into your Event Viewer, in Administrative Tools, in the Control Panel to check the error and the warning messages there, (first click to select either applications or system on the left side, then just double click one of the messages on the right side to open for details). Also some loose connections and or components inside your PC too may do that random restarting.

    I have ran all my Anti-Virus and Anti-Spyware tools and they seem to have found nothing. Since, yesterday there have only been 1 restart. I hope the problem is going to go away, but I will definitely check out the event viewer if it does restart again.
