    Once again Vista is driving me crazy - but now it's serious. Suddenly my system has begun rebooting during startup. Vista displays the scrolling lines for awhile, then the cursor appears in the centre of the screen - then BANG! The PC reboots, with the initial POST screen. No error messages, nothing in the system logs. Thank God I have a working drive image to restore, because nothing else will fix the problem - not Safe Mode, not Last Known Good. The problem is, I cannot switch off my PC without having to do a complete drive restore the next time I switch on. Which means that my OST file in Outlook is now wrong, and any recent changes have been lost, as well as my mind, I think. Vista has certainly cut a few years off MY lifespan! If Bill Gates had to pay a dollar for every minute of wasted time that Vista has cost us poor suckers, he would be bankrupt very quickly!

    Additional: I tried the Vista system repair, booting with my Vista Ultimate CD, which after about half an hour of 'attempting repairs' made not the slightest difference. I also restored the Vista image to a different hard drive, in case it was a hardware issue - also no difference.
