View Full Version : Sudden Shutdowns

14-01-2009, 02:05 PM
A year ago my computer started shutting down repeatedly & unexpectedly.I eventually found the problem related to TCP connection limits & downloaded EventID 4226 Patcher (the 4226 fix). Now EXACTLY 1 year to the day the problem is back.I will go through the same process again to remedy this but is there somewhere in Admin Tools etc I need to alter so this becomes a permanent fix & not an annual event? In the back of my mind I feel I read somewhere that this problem occurs mainly to people that use utorrent - but not entirely sure. Using Windows XP Home. Thanks

To see if a BSOD or error shows up you need to disable automatic restart.

Right Click My computer>properties>Advanced Tab>Under Startup and Recovery>settings>Untick Automatically Restart>Click Ok

That error / and that patch wouldnt shut the computer down

Its probably malware / a file / driver thats causing it
