    Ok a couple of problems. I was experiencing a wierd issue with my pc, my first instinct was to reinstall to an earlier date (about 2 weeks) when everything was fine.

    After i did this, i found 2 problems.

    1) Everytime i boot up to my desktop, i get this error from windows


    2) Everytime i load some programmes, my pc restarts. The programme i found this trouble with was 'xfire'. Also i tried to load up an embedded youtube video from facebook, this also caused a restart. As much as this bermuses me, seeming that i NEVER had this problem before, you must understand that my pc is very old and has quite poor specs (bought in late 05, single core 2ghz, 1GB ram nvidia 6200 card). The main problem is 2), i can live with the first. Please tell me there is a way to help. You guys at tech support have helped me in 3 previous instances and hopefully you can help me again :)

    Thanks in advance, Mark.

    Please post here IF u need me to expand or clarify any of the points in the OP, as they were sort of rushed
