    Hello everyone:

    I am receiving a black screen with the following moments after startup has succesfully completed

    "Windows Protection Error.
    You need to restart your computer.
    Press any key...................."

    After pressing a key I am greeted by the "It is now safe to shut down your computer screen"

    This happens everytime after startup has successfully completed. It started a week ago where the frequency was hourly and it has progressed to the point where it is brief moments after startup when it happens.

    I have researched Microsoft.com and other troubleshooting sites trying to remedy the problem to no avail. Any help/feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,
    TC
