  • my pc restarts between 3:00am to 8:00am

    Hello , Im new to this forum and I'm kinda noob when it comes to troubleshooting

    but I think I can fix this when someone guide me.

    ok , my PC restarts between 3:00am to 8:00am , my pc is safe from malware or virus , and all of the hardware are fine.

    and if I leave my pc or idle it for a couple of hours it will restart then it doesnt shows any error notice or BSOD.

    I changed my anti virus from nod32 to avg , and it helps a little (some of my program is working properly now)

    btw, my pc seems neglecting its windows update

    recently , I noticed that the Yellow Shield tray(windows update) doesnt show anymore .

    help me please?

    Nothing in the event logs?

    Check what setting you have for Automatic Updates.

    Check to see if the PC is configured to automatically reboot after a critical error.

      my event logs is filled with Success Audit > Source:NT AUTHORITY/SYSTEM
      and Service Control Manager > Source:Service Control Manager(its description has something to do with automatic updates.

      The settings of my automatic updates is set to automatic.

      I've already uncheck the box that automatically restart when system failed.

        If the PC is only rebooting between 3:00am and 8:00am its possible that it is windows updates rebooting your PC. Check you automatic updates settings to see what time it is set to install the updates.

        A little weird that it happens everyday since typically Microsoft only release updates on the second Tuesday of each month. But your PC could be stuck on a particular update that it is erroring out on. Check the event log and see if there are any windows update errors.

            Change the Automatic Update setting? Either change the time of installation, or disable automatic installation?

            Alternatively, if XP Home supports local group policies (can't remember offhand) then set the GP option to not automatically reboot.

            What is "thingy"? Presumably you are referring to the Windows Update service?

              Go to your Control Panel, then Automatic Updates. Change it to manual install of updates.

                  Read my post. That is the easiest way to check and change your automatic settings for windows update.
