We did the cleaning noted at this Cnet video -> http://reviews.cnet.com/Clean_up_your_laptop/4660-10165_7-6648292.html then put it on a laptop cooling pad.
The clue for that machine was that the reboot took place about a minute after getting on the internet.
-> Your choice of AVG 8 is a good one but today, for now, I think you want to look at the TASK MANAGER and if that is hitting 100%, look and see if AVG is sucking up all the CPU cycles. If so, try AVAST.
Hi, I have a AMD Sempron processor using Win XP. I have had it for quite some time now, but it is starting to reboot itself when I am online. I am on a website and it goes blank and reboots itself. Any suggestions as to how to fix this problem. I recently downloaded AVG 8.0. Thanks..
