Hi,
I have a friend whose PC just keeps rebooting during normal use, it's already rebooted 3/4 times this morning 1300 my time..

does this sound like malware? what should we advise them to do? I would have suggested booting in safemode and running a malware scan.

any suggestions?

thanks,

Yh, did an Ewido scan, turns out to be New.DotNet, that was unstable and crashing rundll32.exe.
I think that's what was causing the reboots. just waiting on conformation that it's stopped.
