Adobe Flash and Java are two very common graphics engines used with Web sites and other needs. Check that they are updated.
Win XP is more or less an 'orphan' now, and programming is oriented mainly to the latest OS version.
I still run XP Pro on my main system, Adobe Flash and Java are updated when needed. But a lot of sites ask for activation of Adobe Flash to display some graphics.

Running any uninstaller program in 'safe' mode may not remove all the associated operational links (DLL files) as in 'normal' mode.

I updated Java to the latest version, but I will have to check adobe flash. I also checked the memory sticks to make sure they are functioning properly ... and they check out good ... the program I used to uninstall the graphic drivers had to be done in safemode according to the instructions. I have a feeling this is something simple, but I can't put my finger on it! :roll:

I think you may have nail it Karl ... I just remember that in order to see what the latest driver I need for the GPU at the Nvidia site I had to enable Java ... after I did that is when the random rebooting started. Java is disabled now and so far no rebooting. :)

May be some conflicts with older Adobe Flash and Java versions. Completely uninstall them, check their program folders for any remnants.. then DL and install latest versions.
So far, I only get queries to activate the "flash" feature on some sites. Java seems OK.

Karl, I tried uninstalling adobe flash player 17 active X ... when I did the rebooting problem came back. I did a system restore to the point before I uninstalled the flash player ... I let it sit for a couple of hours and no rebooting ...then I tried surfing the web and the rebooting problem came back even with the active X back. If I can XP and do an install of win7 would that get rid of the rebooting problem? :?

The Internet Explorer for Win XP is no longer honored by most software and sites.. security issues. But Firefox and other browsers are still viable.
Adobe Flash does not honor Win XP any longer. But the current program version is supposed to be compatible.
You may need the 'uninstaller' program from Adobe to clear out any older file types.. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1069861
May need the Active X security update?

Howdy Karl ... I ran the uninstaller and the update you gave me, then I installed the latest flash player ... but after 20 minutes of surfing it rebooting on me. I just have the adobe flash player 22 ... should I look for the active X flash player too? Thanks for those links. :D

A lot of sites still use Active X on Web pages.
Active X has had security issues, but should be more secure now. There is a diagnostics program from MS to check if the Active X install has problems.. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downloa ... x?id=24314
If you need a reinstall of Active X, get it only from the MS update site to ensure it is genuine and with no 'bugs'.
Adobe "Shockwave Player" is also a popular Web page adjunct.. http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download ... n32700.htm

Okay ... I downloaded the analyzer, but I don't know what to do with it. The instructions aren't very clear. I also uninstalled and reinstalled the latest shockwave. :-|

Should be in your download folder. If you don't have that in the root of the primary drive, default is in the Documents and Settings > [User Name] > My Documents > Downloads. Could also go to the desktop.
It is an executable file, just double click it and follow prompts. But you have to choose which program corresponds to the NET framework setup on your system.
