    Is it rebooting after a fresh install or did this just start? What was the last item you installed? Have you tried booting into safe mode and doing a virus check, installed software check, system check? Do any errors appear before it reboots?

    the laptop was actually on dial-up then my friend linked it up to broadband. she suspects that maybe the antivirus software was not strong enough for broadband. other that=n that nothing was installed. no errors appear before it reboots. and going to the safe mode does not help.

    What Antivirus are you using and how do you handle the updates?
