Preferred Solution: Windows auto-restart

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Windows auto-restart


One good site reports that this is "most commonly it results from overheating, from failed hardware (RAM, CPU, hardware bus, power supply, etc.), or from pushing hardware beyond its capabilities (e.g., overclocking a CPU)".

I've got a fresh install of windows XP pro SP2, that is currently downloading a 1.3GB update for a game.. however windows has downloaded some updates and keeps bringing up this dialogue box that gives me about 4 mins before the machine will automatically restart - thus cancelling my download (which is about a quater of the way through).

Is there a way I can just stop this from coming up like stopping a service or something? I just don't want to be sitting in front of the computer clicking "restart later" every 10 mins or so..

A:Windows update: Auto restart

Just click restart later as many times as you need.

Is there a way I can set up power options to Restart on a nightly, weekly or monthly basis?

A:Auto Restart Option in Windows 7

I would like to suggest you try the following steps to restart the computer automatically nightly.
1.   Launch Task Scheduler.
2.   Click Action and select Create Basic task.
3.   Type AutoRestart (or others you want) in the Name box and click Next.
4.   Select Daily and click Next
5.   Type the time you want to restart the computer and click Next.
6.   Select Start a program and click Next.
7.   Click Brower and navigate to %SystemRoot%\System32 and select Shutdown.exe and click Open. Type –F –R in the Add arguments (optional) box and click Next.
8.   Click Finish.
Does it work?

I run a server at night to run a program file and every now and then it crashes and comes up CLOSE program.exe as an error ( i turnred error reporting off - still comes up though)

Anyway since i cant get rid of this error message is it possible to have a prog to auto kill this when it crashes? OR

A prog that can restart the program/ process on a crash or hang?

A:Auto restart a process or auto kill on CRASH or HANG

Have a look in the Event Viewer through the control panel-> administrative tools. Look at both "system" and "applications" . If you can determine the program that is giving the error you will want to reinstall that troublesome program.

please help me, thankyou for your attention

A:my windows 8 auto restart when i shut it down and bsod

You might want to shut off some of those startup programs, like Internet Download Manager and Yahoo Messenger. Does Fifa run under Steam? Well, Steam will not work right unless your Dot Net 4 and above are in perfect order. Also, any time you get a BSOD, you should do an external disk scan, because when windows 8 blue-screens it can sometimes damage your drive. But it is easily fixed, you can download Hiren's Boot CD from the link below, boot to it, go to Dos programs, go into Hard Drive tools, and you can start by seeing if GWscan detects your drive. GWscan is on the 3rd page of entries. If that does not find your drive, you can use the tool for the maker of the drive which should be included in Hard Drive tools.

You want to see if the Disk program detects any read errors, if it finds them, it usually sets it up to repair it with a full disk scan, that will take about an hour for new machines and 500 GB to 1 TB hard drives.

You can also download GWscan or WDdiag or Seagate Seatools from their websites. GWscan is on the Gateway site, but it can check a large number of drives. But that's what I would do first. If your hard drive is OK, then I would start by removing some of those startup items.

Usually Windows is OK about notifying you but for this last update I had 5 different people all call me VERY upset that they had lost important work because Windows Updates just hijacked their computer and started installing and then restarted WITHOUT NOTICE.
I like the Auto install feature to ensure that updates aren't missed but really???? Why does Microsoft have to act like the very thing it is trying to prevent and take over your computer without your permission.
At the very least if there is a user logged in their should be a window that REQUIRES a "yes" click before an auto-restart is performed.
I have a solution to prevent this (below) but really it SHOULD be by default for everyone, not requiring specific knowledge of a policy to be set. My father has now lost part of his book he was writing (in Word) that he will never get back because
of Microsoft's hijacking.
I have the Group Policy Set "No auto restarts when users are logged in" but I am running Windows 7 Professional and it isn't so easy with the other versions.
For those who don't have Windows 7 Pro/Ultimate to run gpedit.msc - Computer Config-Admin templates-Windows Components-Windows Update you can use the following - save in Notepad and rename to a something.reg file and double click.

Hey All,

Today I got a notice in my System Tray query that the Fall Creators Update was ready to be installed. I am on the Anniversary Update (Build 1703) I hit the Snooze option and set it to install this evening, which was one of the prompts.

About 9:30 I check the restart options, and it is set to update at 10pm. 10pm shows up, no notification in system tray, no update starting. Update is now pushed to 11PM. No update. What is going on here?

I have a problem with windows xp sp2.
Was playing War3 and the system crashed. I figured a buggy game or something but i go to restart a few hours later and get this.

The Problem seems to be caused by the following file: sptd.sys


I took the drive out and slaved it to another computer and changed the file name to dpts.old but that didnt do anything, just gave me another error. So i put it back the way it was backed up everything that i wanted and went to re-install windows. But that wont work either. I boot from cd and the it loads and loads and loads. Then after loading drivers and what not at the bottom for a while it says something windows. Then restarts and does the same thing everytime. I am 100% stuck dont know what i should. I can slave it to another computer, and do whatever changing needs to be done i would prefer to get my old system working but if not at the least be able to re-install windows..
Im stuck really need some help...

Thank you

Hi all, I'm not sure if someone else has asked about this, but I just installed the final release of Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on my desktop and Firefox constantly crashes on me. I'm guessing the main reason is because of a script I run through greasemonkey. My question is 2 fold:

1) Do you know how to fix this? I would really prefer to have firefox not crash every day (or multiple times a day)
2) If I can't keep firefox from crashing, do you know if there's a way I can get firefox to automatically restart when it crashes?

A:Firefox crashes constantly in Windows 7, auto restart?

I actually just noticed that there's a newer version of firefox. I was using 3.0.14. I allowed me to download 3.5.3. If this works then that's awesome, if not I'd still be interested in a auto restart app or extension.

I've been fighting random auto restarts/dirty restarts for days. I finally reinstalled Win10 over itself and that seemed to fix it for some hours but it came back. It's a 10 upgrade over a 7 pro that's loaded with a lot of apps across two hard drives. I've got an Asus Z87M-plus mobo and the problem occurs with the new Asus Win10 drivers, the MS default Win10 drivers and the old Win7 drivers. I removed the apps installed over 3 days leading up to the start of this with no success. sfc /scannow says it found problems but fixed them on the 2nd install. It found no corruption on the 1st install. I did break the 2nd install with a bungled Bitdefender install but daelt with that with a full uninstall with their special tool and then sfc fixed the bad files. When it was broken, I could not bring up Control Panel.

I've tried a safe boot, but since I can only run Chrome, it's hard to test it much, but it is stable in safe mode-I think. it tends to crash when I'm typing on a website in Chrome (like if I was on Win10 as I type this) or in Word but I'm in Win7. But it will crash just sitting there too with no typing.

Now here's the question. Could this be my power supply? On at least two occasions it shut down at the split second the central A/C kicked in. May have happened more times and I just did not notice it. The problem is I'm in Win7 now and it's solid. Win 7 never had this problem, not ever. Seems improbably that a new OS w... Read more

Can I install Windows Updates Automatically, but not restart automatically?
Or disable restarting after installing updates?
I am leaving my computer to run programs while I am away, and it is a b*tch to see coming home and see Windows restarted.
I chose the option to download, but ask me to install. That is my solution, but I was wondering if there was any way to disable automatic restarting.
(I know, just install when you want is a great option, I was just wondering, that is it.)

P.S.: Do we have a delete post option in the forum. At least in the next 15 minutes or an hour, or posts without a reply?

A:Can I install Windows Updates Automatically, but not restart auto?

If you've set Updates to ask you to install, you are installing them yourself not automatically so install them when you can handle the restart but not when you are doing something else.

We have a windows update group policy applied to various users machines in our domain. The policy is to automatically restart / update users machines if they are logged off. This does not appear to be working in any case.

I have compared the registry settings on machines to what they should be if the policy applied and they are correct:


AUOptions - 4
NoAutoRebootedWithLoggedOnUsers - 1
ScheduledInstallDay - 0
ScheduledInstallTime- 1

This would imply the install / restart should be happening automatically at 1am if no user is logged on.

When users come in in the morning and log in they immediately get a "Restart your machine to finish installing updates" dialogue and it is driving us insane!

Can anyone please advise ?

My computer was unable to upgrade to windows 7. I am using a compaq presario notebook PC. The boot device ( CD ) does not work, the system recovery does not work and there is no "repair my computer" on the F8 option. I tried safe mode and it does the same thing as start windows normally. It will say Setup is starting services and after 10 seconds it will auto restart.

Also, is there a way to load the windows.old files?

A:Unable to upgrade windows 7, starting services auto-restart

You can install Windows 7 from a flash drive if your computer supports it. If not, why not replace the optical drive so you have one that works?

If you do not have a Windows 7 installation DVD, you can download a legal copy with SP1 integrated from here: Official Windows 7 SP1 ISO from Digital River.
Make sure you get the same version you have, Home Premium, Pro or Ultimate and 32 or 64 bit. Note that Basic or Starter is not available.

You can now use the downloaded .iso file to create a bootable flash drive using Universal USB Installer ? Easy as 1 2 3.

Simply start it, select Windows 7 from the drop down menu, point to the downloaded .iso and your flash drive, and your off.

So, I've been trying out Windows 7, and I've been pleasantly surprised for the most part. However, I've been getting several BSODs, including some 0x124 ones that I didn't have on this same computer using XP. The only new hardware I've installed is a hard drive. Anyways, the non-0x124 ones happen seemingly randomly, and they force the computer to reboot even though I have automatically reboot on error disabled in the system options, so I'm not sure what they are.

The 0x124 stop has only happened twice, but the other ones are more frequent. I'm looking over this thread for help with the 0x124 stops, but I would really appreciate some help with the others! Here are the only two dumps in my minidump folder, which I'm guessing are the 0x124 ones, but I'll post them anyway.

A:BSOD, forces restart but have auto restart off

Yes, it contains 1 STOP 0x124 error message. The only possible issue that I could see is with hamachi.sys dated Feb of 2009 and amdxdata.sys dated May of 2009. Beyond that you're stuck with the advice in the STOP 0x124 thread.

hi im having serious problems with xp atm.
I was having probs with programs crashing all the time wgen i left my pc unattended. so last night i downloaded a program called autorestarter fromhttp://teamsoftware.bizland.com/downloads.html (first i found) ran it and went to bed.
Got up this morning to check on its progress and found my pc had rebooted. i have windows set up so you have to sign on to your user account so i signed on as normal and everything looked fine. desktop loaded up all icons etc. however after approx 5 secs something odd occured.
The best way i can describe it is that it is very similar to the way your pc reacts when explorer encounters an error and everything in the background reboots but the screens you are on continue to work fine (thank god or i wouldnt even be able to get this help). so to elaborate my connection can stay active, firefox is still alive and ive just run a 10 day avg antivirus and found nothing but all is collapsing about me,
samething is also happening in safe mode, also not letting me do system restore for some reason that closes whenever the reboot occurs. start menu also closes as do open folders, msn messemger and ie6 wont load and i need helps to possible solutions, format is last option really but if i gotta i gotta.

Hi there,

There is a virus in my PC running Windows XP,

while i work, it's being restarted automatically and i can't prevent it, there is a "msconfig" command to disable Softwares being loaded in startup, but after i type this command in CMD, it's being restarted and all windows are being closed,

I tried to run in safe mode, with "F8" command, but it's happing the same.

any idea how to disable startUP programs ?


A:how to prevent auto RESTART

Uncheck everything in msconfig>Startup and >Services tabs after Hiding all MS Services.

I'd also run a full scan with Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware, uninstall any AV bloatware and try the recommended ones, run SFC to test system file integrity from the Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7.

If you have a rootkit or other serious trojan I'd google or ask back in our Security forum for specialized tools to run to remove it.

A:PC auto-restart/freeze

Read other 7 answers

I am working on a computer for a friend. The computer is a Compaq Presario 5300NX. They thought the mother board was bad so they put in a new motherboard and used their existing processor, RAM, etc. When the computer is turned on, it shows the splash screen, then right before it should begin to show the desktop, it flashes a blue screen for a split second and then restarts the computer. The computer will not go into safe mode, when that option is selected after pressing F8 during boot, it begins to try to load, but never loads the desktop, right before it should, it restarts. I have ran chkdsk /r , fixboot, fixmbr, and repaired Windows XP. After the repair, It loaded to the point of being able to pick which user to log in to windows. I picked one and it loaded the wallpaper and froze. Then i booted into safe mode successfully, but it was extremely slow (took almost 10 minutes). Then it was back to the way it was when they brought me their computer. Any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated.


A:Constant Auto Restart

You might try to reboot and use F8 to get to the same screen as Safe Mode and select the option that stops auto restart to allow you to see what the error code of the BSOD is...Then re-start... It could be a failing HDD or bad RAM or even over-heating...There are endless numbers of things but if you can at least see what the error code is that would be a good start to finding the problem...

My pc started having this weird random auto restart problem about a few weeks ago.. I tried turning off auto restart in startup & recovery settings, scanned for virus(none detected), cleaned the registry, & scanned for spyware but nothing helped..
I used to have 1 CD/DVD Combo drive & 1 DVD burner installed but I've unplugged them cause I thought the power supply couldn't handle the amount of pressure.. However that didn't work and it auto restarted again a day after that..

A:Why does my computer auto restart

The Disable automatic restart on system failure option on the Advanced Options Menu only applies during that boot. Once you log in, the regular setting is re-instated.

To disable the automatic restart:
Click Start, type SystemPropertiesAdvanced, press Enter
Click the Settings... button under Startup and Recovery
Uncheck Automatically restart in the System failure section
OK back to the Desktop.
