My computer has been randomly shutting down without a crash log. Using event viewer I cant find anything that is causing this. This got so serious that it corrupted C:/Windows/Config so I had to reinstall my OS. After doing this and installing SP2 everything seemed fine, but now 2weeks on, it is doing it again.

Strangely though when the computer is shutting down, the computer tries to open "Calc.exe" but can't because the computer is shutting down.

I thought that it might be a virus or a trojan but Norton AV doesn't pick up anything unusual.

My Specs -
Windows XP Home w/ SP2
P4 3.06 GHz w/ HT (Northwood 533 FSB)
1028 MB DDR
ATi 9800Pro 128MBram
120GB hard drive
400 Watt PSU

Hi, and welcome to the TSG forum :) (y)

goto
control panel>
system>
advanced tab>
startup and recovery - settings>
under the title - system failure
untick - automatically restart

now when it crashes the blue screen should stay on the screen
post the info on the screen
it will give the eroorcodes and a filename, if caused by a driver.
