Preferred Solution: Windows 7 automatic 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 7 automatic restart

Are you running the beta version? Because afaik the beta version has already expired so it will restart like that.

Install the RC version or the RTM trial.

Hello everyone,

I have searched around a bit to see if others have ran into this problem, but I have had no luck so far. When I start my computer, it pops up with the standard menu it uses when an OS error has caused a restart. I can't get it too load windows using safe mode, last known good configuration, or normal mode. I never even see the windows loading screen, it restarts immediately.

Here is what I have tried:
1) I ran a check disk using the recovery console but it did not fix the problem.
2) I manually backed up the SYSTEM, SAM, DEFAULT, SECURITY, and SOFTWARE files from the root\windows\system32\config folder. I then replaced those files with ones from a few days ago located in the root\system volume information\ folder. It did not fix my problem.
3) I'm about to re-install windows when I decide to press f8 on boot and disable automatic restarts on system failure just to see if I'm missing some sort of BSOD. Windows completely loaded without any problems.
4) This confused me so I reversed the actions I took in step 2 (above) just to see whether it would boot with the original files as long as I chose "Disable Automatic Restarts on System Failure." It loaded windows without a problem.
5) I restarted to see whether it would boot normally or not. Again, it wouldn't load windows with any options other than the "Disable automatic restarts on system failure" option.

At this point, I'm pretty confused. Could the OS be mistakin... Read more

At first windows loads up as usual to desktop. After about 30 seconds, it randomly restarts and after that it keeps getting stuck at boot logo and then restarts again looping over and over again.

This also happens on safemode. I managed to uncheck automatically restart option on sysdm.cpl with the 30 seconds that I had, but even after doing that, the restart looping persists. I dont know what to do.

The last time windows worked normally, I played Forza Horizon 4 with logitech g29 steering wheel and shifter which was working perfectly fine for 4 days after I got the steering wheel. The next day I go to turn my computer on and this happened.

Hello, I just wanted to say here on the forums that making the Windows update restart my computer automatically, no matter what, is ridiculous. The last time the update had restarted my computer while I was using it, I went and put the settings to the option of "choose when to restart" or 'ask me first' or whatnot. Regardless of the fact that I consciously went and changed the setting so that it would not automatically update my computer, it still does it. The first time that it did it again, it wasn't a big deal. I checked the settings again and after some research learned that it would still probably restart my computer automatically without my say, no matter what, even though I had purposely changed the settings not to do so.

The first time this happened after I had changed the settings was not a big deal. The second time yesterday morning, however, was. To be short and not include the details, I had a video job interview at 9:00am. A very, very impotant interview. I turned on my computer around 7:30am, booted it up and left it on. When I came back to my computer around 8:45am, I opened the video software and prepared to connect to / recieve the call. This was when Windows Update decided that it was more important to restart my computer and apply an update to Windows.

This update took around 20-25 minutes. I never had an option to postpone or avoid this action. I thought about holding the power, but as most everything explicitly warns against turning off ... Read more

Well,

I have been looking around for something about this, but strangely, the only people talking about this want to turn it off...

My problem is that I never ever seen my Win8 reboot himself, yet I have set my system up that he checks for updates at a time I am not on my computer and has to/can reboot if needed, but this just never happens, I always have to do a manual reboot when I get home, and that is really very annoying.

So, guess my question is, how do I force Win8 to download, install and restart computer if needed after updates at a given time ?

Though if by any chance I am on my computer at that time, I would like to have some notification or pop-up telling me I have to restart.

I don't see my login screen, it is all automated, my computer is always running 24/7, so I don't see any messages on the login screen and the Win8 update page is a major hassle to get to.

Any tips and advice appreciated,
Thanks in advance,
Bart

Windows 10 Home rebooted for an unknown reason this morning.
I woke up and found my pc hanged and unresponsive.
I was able to connect through the vnc server, and saw the dot-circle going round and round. Just stuck there.

I had to hard reboot. When I checked the Event Viewer, I could not determine what triggered the restart.

Yesterday, I installed a new nvidia graphics driver, but did not reboot. It did not ask me to.

Windows update setting is set to "notify me to schedule restart"
I set that a long time ago. so it's not supposed to auto reboot.

What other ways does Windows auto reboot? I need to shut them off.

I need my pc to have 100% uptime, and only allow manual reboots. I hate when I wake up to surprises like this.

Dear Tech Support Guy,

Automatic Restart Needs Improvement in Windows 10

I would like to see a pop up warning say for example at least 10 minutes before an automatic restart is to occur in Windows 10. This will allow users to keep the automatic restart recommended setting, while at the same time, permitting them to finish their work. My Windows 10 desktop PC restarted with the huge November, 2015 Threshold 2 Update (Build 1511) in the early evening, about 7:45 PM. Restarts should be done in the early morning hours, say between 3-4am when most people are asleep.

I have selected the "Notify of Scheduled Restart." option, which I believe should be the default setting, as users in Windows 8.1 would get pop-up notices by default. Some questions:

1.) If a users selects "Notify of Scheduled Restart" for Windows Update, in Windows 10, what message will they see the next time a restart is scheduled? (Screenshots would be helpful.)

2.) Let's suppose that I schedule the restart for 3:30am when not using the computer. Will this time setting hold for all the next subsequent updates that need a system restart until changed?

I've encountered a number of issues with viruses and malware over the past week, but I'm getting close to completely ridding my machine of all infections. I'm using a Sony Vaio FE-690P laptop and running a legal copy of Windows XP Professional.Before my problems started, I was using Ad-Aware and McAfee VirusScan periodically as my main defense against infections. When my computer started to act up, I performed scans through each program. Each scan turned up a number of items, some more dangerous than others, so I took note of them and deleted the items. Upon a system reboot, I performed the same scan again and found that some of the exact items I thought had just deleted reappeared. One of the four items that I was unable to get rid of was the Virtumonde virus. After doing some internet research, I downloaded Spyware Doctor, paid for a subscription, and performed a scan. Spyware Doctor found the same items as Ad-Aware, but would also not allow their complete removal. I then ran an additional scan using a tool within Spyware Doctor called the Malware Detective Tool. I don't know how or why it happened, but since using that tool, my scans now come back free of infections. That all leads to this...So I felt good knowing I had hopefully resolved my problems. My computer was no longer showing any symptoms of infection. That is until I received the following error message:"Generic Host Process for Win32 Services encountered a problem and needs to close."On... Read more

What is broken about active hours for you?

Active hours lets Windows know when you usually use this device. When a restart is necessary to finish installing an update, Windows won't automatically restart your device during active hours.

I have moved this thread over, as I felt it was a different issue.

Previous thread - Most of the main services will not start?

I'm running win 7 Ultimate 32 Bit, which has been fine up to a few days ago when on start up reaching the desktop I started getting a window saying "Windows has encountered a critical problem and will restart automatically in one minute." it would then restart and continually loop this way.

I booted to safe mode and had no restart message, so was able to run a virus scan using Microsoft security essentials, however if I booted to safe mode with networking the restart window would show again.

I have looked for the Gbp Service, which I was advised might be causing the problem, but cannot find this in services running.

However, I have found that by discounting the internet, the restart issue does not show, but as soon as I connect to the internet, it pops up and the system restarts.

Does this indicate a virus or trojen of some kind?

Any suggestion how I stop this, as I cannot run a up to date antivirus program without being connected to the internet to get the latest updates?

Happy.

Hi everyone,
Newbie here so hope I posted this in the right section.

I am not able to boot up my laptop at all so I cannot do the DM Log Collector, sorry!

I own an ASUS R500A laptop that seemed to have crashed for no reason yesterday. I was using it, went afk for a few hours, came back and saw it in Windows Error Recovery. I had 2 options - Start Windows Normally or Launch Startup Repair. Start Windows Normally loops back to Windows Error Recovery. Launch Startup Repair takes me to a blank screen with ASUS logo and a window X:\windows\system32\cmd.exe. I am unable to type anything in this box.

I cannot boot in Safe Mode (loops again). I get BsoD when i choose "Disable Automatic Restart Upon System Error". I did not install any new hardware or software recently. I also don't have a Windows 7 DVD or Recovery Disk to boot from. After a few more times trying to reboot, F8 on start up no longer takes me to the screen where I can choose to boot in Safe Mode. All I get is the Windows Error Recovery window.

Is this something I can fix on my own or should I bring it to a repair shop? I would appreciate any help you guys can provide! I'm heartbroken that I might have lost all my pictures of my beloved pets that have passed on, as well as my school work.

I'm running Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2 on a HP Media Center PCm7170n

I have ran several virus scanners such as Kaspersky Internet Security and AVG Anti Virus and defraggged and scanned my hard drive.

My computer seems that whenever it is idle it will reboot. I'm not even getting the dialog box that countdowns and asks me to reboot. I will leave my computer and when i come back sometimes within 5 minutes it will have reboot. Doesn't matter what program I have up and running. As long as I am working on the computer it does not reboot. But if i walk away, it will have. It even rebooted while i was running Zone Alarm and had the security set on the highest setting.

It doesn't seem to do it at any specific time, as in if i have a particular program up and running. It doesn't matter it will reboot whether i have nothing running or all messengers and p2p running. It reboots either way

Both virus scanners have come up with nothing. Any suggestions?

Hey everyone,

I have tried to look for a similar problem here at TSG, but I couldn't find one so I decided to post. I have a desktop computer that I got about a year ago, it's running XP Pro on Pentium 4 3.2GHz system, has 512 ram and I think a 200Gb HDD. Lately it has been restarting, usually when I try to, eg: listen to music and surf the web, which is nothing strenuous, especially for a computer which I thought was pretty good. All of a sudden though, it has just restarted itself and, and as soon as it gets to the Windows XP loading screen, it restarts again and again. I can never get past the XP loading screen. I have a lot of valuable information on the computer and so I was hoping that someone would be able to help me fix this issue without formatting if possible. I thought it may have had something to do with temperature, so I've gone into BIOS just after letting it restart itself once to monitor the temperature, when I went into it at first, the CPU temp was 39 degrees celsius, after five minutes it has gone up to 49. I've taken the both the case sides off to see if it helps, but the temp keeps rising. Do you think its related to temperature or something else??? ANY help would be GREATLY appreciated!!

Thanks a lot!

i have a Dell Vostro 1000 with Windows XP Home SP2

every time i log in, like normal, my desktop begins to load up. Halfway through loading up, i get an error message and my computer begins to count down from 60 seconds. After the 60 seconds, it restarts.

because i only have 60 seconds, i do not have time to access most programs, and therefore, i cannot post a HiJack This log.

the error message says:
This system is shutting down. Please save all
work in progress and log off. Any unsaved
changes will be lost. This shutdown was
initiated by NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM
Time before shutdown: 00:00:60

Basically we have recently purchased a new workstation it is a HP vectra (nice and cheap).
The problem I am having is it restarts when NT is shutdown.
It never brings up the safe to turn off message.
Now is this and HP or an NT problem.
I am thinking it must be the machine.

xp pro sp2 automatic updates enabled. My computer restarts automatically after shut down. This happens sometimes immediately, sometimes after a delay of up to 10 minutes. I tried using third party shut down programs, but that did not help. However, if I let the computer go into hibernate, it shuts down and does not restart. I do not have Roxio installed, and in the settings for startup and recovery the automatic restart is disabled. Anybody know of a fix for this? Thanks Esmo

I am working on my friends Dell Inspiron 570 it will turn off. It goes through the proper shutdown sequence and goes off for about 2 seconds then kicks back on automatically. I have turned off the wake up on LAN activity setting, I have also scanned for viruses. It is running Win 7, 6 gigs of ram, and an Athlon II X4 630 2.8 processor. I have also downloaded the newest bios form dell's site as well as chipset drivers. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Alex

Also I forgot to mention I tried a new power supply as well.

A:Will Not Stay Off Automatic restart

To confirm...please do the following:

Start Menu > Shut down

Does it still reboot instead of just shut down?

What happens when you actually tell it to reboot?

Hey there! I recently assembled my own custom PC (see specs lower down) and when all the parts were assembled it turned ugly. When I started the computer it turns on fine, for about 3 seconds. Then it turns itself off again, 5 seconds after that it turns itself on again. It then repeats this cycle into eternity...According to another forum I visited it might be that my haswell refresh processor won't go together with the standard bios version of the h87 chipset. But I never got a clear answer from them...Could someone please help me with this .

Chassi : fractal design arc XL

Hi there. From searching on forums, this is quite an issue. But everybody suggests to go to gpedit.msc. My OS (Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit) does NOT have that function. There is a folder for policies, but it is empty. Also, the settings for updates does not have any option of that nature. So what do you do to prevent Windows from restarting automatically after applying an update?

A:Automatic restart after updates

You should have group policies do you have admin?

So, I've been having a bunch of problems with BSODs lately and I've been struggling to find the cause because even after disabling automatic restart in the system properties, the damn thing still restarts. All I get is the Windows Error Reporting service starting up when the computer reboots and telling me my computer just Blue Screened. I'm pretty sure I could figure out what it is (I already know it's not RAM, because I ran memtest on it for 13 hours with no results) if I just could get at that error code on the blue screen, but that's hard to do when you never even see it.

A:Disabling automatic restart

We need to know more about your BSODs...Download BlueScreenView (in Zip file)No installation required.Unzip downloaded file and double click on BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program and When scanning is done, go to Edit > Select All.Then go to File > Save Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt.Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.Compliments of Broni
