I am running Windows XP Pro. and I'm hooked up to the internet through cable. And out of know where my computer will reboot on it's own so I installed a "Anti-Crash" program and this is still happening?. And I also turned back the clock on my computer as it were and still this is happening?. And my family or I will be working on the computer and again out of know where the computer will reboot?. Now I get a Microsoft message that says that I had a "Device Error" and one time I got a "Hardware Error" and I have uninstalled "EVERY!!" on my computer one at a time and still this happens. In fact it happened again yesterday and I got another "Device Error" message. And when I set up my computer to leave the blue screen and I have all of these long numbers and when I contacted my computer maker they didn't even know what to make of it and this is a custome built system. So can you "PLEASE!!!!!!!!!" help me with my situation??????

Hopefully you still have the record of stop errors and/or event ids that are causing you trouble. If you would post them here or email them to me at , I would happily sort through them and research a solution to your problem.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
