Panda active scan causes computer to restart

Done it twice now [and lost me a nearly finished WU but that's besides the point].
Is this just one of those things, or indicative of a problem? Tried it on another computer with almost identical specs [same mobo, 1.8GHz CPU, 512Mb RAM] and it went through OK.

pandasoftware has given me problems in the past, never touched the thing again. I'm using CA's EZ Armor suite, free to all optimum online users.

Active scan is probably trying to access a file that is corrupt or infected and crashing the OS.

There are other scans you can try such as Kaspersky etc...
Many of them listed here

Hm. Computer otherwise seems fine, but... it's twice had the same problem with NAV being disabled and not enableable [?]... XP Pro reinstalled each time.
