Just yesterday, August 4, my computer began to restart automatically. I run NAV 2005 and when this happened, I immediately checked the Reports/connections log to determine the last connection made prior to restarting. Well, each time this happens, the last connection is made through port 80, to IP
188.8.131.52 which has the domain name of Net-integration.net. I do not manually make this connection.
Now correct me if I'm wrong, but I suspect that this site *may* be downloading software on my computer *without* my permission or knowledge. In order to activate certain programs, a restart is needed, hence the restarts.
I will be checking my registry through regedit to determine if there is some illegal software in there. I have found more than a few illegal entries in the past that when deleted, fixed a freezing problem. I Googled the registry keys that I was unsure of to determine if they were valid. I found some that were not.
I have not found any bad hardware so far....So may I suggest that before you tear your computer apart and spend lots of money for new hardware, check out the possibility of malware or spyware which may, indeed, be slowing and restarting your computer. Check the last connection made on the internet and see if it is always to the same IP
as it is with mine.
