    Unhappy coincidence??

    Yesterday I had 2 computers crash.....

    One is a dell desktop-1.5 years old
    other is a compaq laptop-4 years old

    Both XP home-sp2

    Both have avast av

    Both have auto updates.......

    I got the laptop to boot by going into safe mode...checking logs...and disabling the auto-restart on a crash..

    It ran chkdsk...and it found some errors...redid some security descripters??...insert index?? 408 in all

    I am using the laptop now all appears well.....

    Anyone know of a log that tells what chkdsk found and fixed?

    I believe it may help with the dell...going to attempt a repair later.

    What do you think...coincidence??
