    My wife had the re-boot problem show up on a machine at work after installing MS Office. A re-install (overtop) of xp fixed it.

    why didn't any one point towards a BSOD and a system set to "Automatically Restart"? :confused:
    it is a known issue with Roxio Easy CD Creator version 5.0 and WinXP.
    Read more about it on ZDNet Australia and M$ Article.
    About bigjackusa with M$ office...cdn't it have been a same problem of BSOD? :?:

    She never mentioned seeing a BSOD. I do know that Nero is the burner software on that machine. I am just dumbfounded over what Office could have done that a re-install would have fixed? If it installed a badly behaved .dll for example, you would think this would have happened to everybody. It has a Matrox vid card, so it isn't related to the Nvidia stuff. Just another "mystery of the universe" I guess.

    may be she didn't mention the BSOD cos the PC was set to "Automatically Restart". that is my point.
    you don't see the BSOD and it just restarts. may be you are right that it is a mystery and it really is for me.

    other than turning off autostart after system failure....

    i went to m$ knowledge data base, typed in windows 98 and "restart after shutdown"

    to be honest aslepios, i think the problem (in our case) was exactly that - however it was doing it as we shut-down, i think i remember vaguely having turned off that error-crap in xp to see if that fixed it. we dont use and NEVER touch roxio coz its crap, so it wasnt that at all for us - and the person that started this thread said it happened in 98 as well as 2k after a format so, valid suggestion, duno bout relevance...

    the post about the acpi setting is most correct - the way i see it is that windows got the HAL a little muddled and was crashing on the instance it tried to shut the computer down, as rebooting worked fine.
