Hello, as of the last three weeks, I've noticed windows (XP) restarting out of the blue, especially when i logged on. At first i thought it might be the fact that I'm typing the wrong password but then i recived a windows has survived a fatal error. At first i shrugged it off and hoped that because it survived it would be fine. Of course i recived it again yesterday so i went into details which was barely any help but to give me the name if the problematic files.
1) C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini042204-01.dmp
2) C:\DOCUME~1\user\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER9.tmp.dir00\sysdata.xml

I did a search on both, the first appears to be of unknown origin, I'm figuring spyware or some kind of garbage. The second however appears to be a a driver or something of signifiance. I went to microsfts web site to see how to solve it. In the article i had read it said that i should try to rollback the driver, but i don't know what driver to roll back. It also told me to do a sys restore, which i dearly want to avoid. Please help, I don't want to have to take this thing into the morons who put it together. (which is one of he possible causes for this problem, poorly installed hardware or drivers) Thanx tech support guy!

Right click "my computer" then click on manage/ event viewer/ system
See if the error created in there describes the problem a bit more.
