    my computer is rebooting randomly, wait before you jump to conclusions

    its not the blaster worm, i've run norton several times (its up to date) it turns up nothing

    and when it reboots it just does, its not like the blaster worm that would shut down RPC and warn you


    wtf...


    is there like a program that will check the system not for viruses but for nessicary files?

    Not sure on this one.... if you leave your computer on without opening any programs, will it eventually reboot?

    mine was doing that because the processor was getting too hot (fan got messed up)...

    the next time it does that, check your BIOS for the temp settings of your CPU and mobo

    Check to make sure all the fans are properly functioning. Case, cpu, and especially your PSU fans. Mine would reboot when my PSU fan died on me.

    Check your bios to see what the cpu temps and fan speeds are.

    My thoughts are a heating problem, or bad power supply (bad voltage, causing reboots. see that at work all the time.) :)
