During An Ad-aware Scan, My Computer Restarts... What Is Wrong?

Recommended Posts

By default, Windows XP is configured by Microsoft to automatically restart during a fatal error or a stop.


Windows XP assumes when Ad-Aware is gathering drive info, that Ad-Aware has stopped (or had an error), so Windows restarts.


Altering the following settings should correct this.


Right-click 'My Computer',

Click the 'Advanced' tab,

Click 'Settings' under 'Startup and Recovery', '

UNCHECK the 'Automatically restart' check box under 'System Failure'.


If you uncheck this check box, you may receive an error message if a stop or error occurs.


Please let us know if, and what error you receive.
