You did what those instructions told you to do?

That was quick...or you just don't want to start from from the beginning again?

Are you overclocking anything...CPU, Video, Memory?

If you are not overclocking and the only thing you did was re-format and start over...then my friend you have a security leak. That is what happens when you don't have Windows updated. There are tons of security updates for Windows XP, USE THEM!!!

Manual patching theses holes is very much impossible for the normal or even experience non-programmers. There is just so many items to deal with and I don't know where to start.

If you don't want to update Windows, then you need to talk to a hacker. They have the best knowledge how to break in and find security leaks, they might be able to help you to patch them.

In other words, pay the $99 bucks to get yourself a registered copy of Windows or learn to code and make the same security patch that Microsoft with lots of expert programmers to patch them for you. That's pretty good for $99 bucks.

It's not that I do everything by the book, but I love to use my computer so usually pay a little bit of money for hours, days, years of fun on my computer.

Sorry, that's not the answer you wanted but I at least gave you options. And remember you can always scrap Microsoft and go with Linux.

Do you have an nVidia? Any Card older than about half a year? I had the same rebooting problem and found it was the Driver and the update worked fine. If on reboot it says Windows has Recovered from a Fatal Error, send the report and if you can go to see what it says about it. Good answers on there always.

my computer did that also but soon i found out that it was hibernating, so i just changed the settings. Also, if your computer is infected with a trojan(s) something like that is common.
