    Systems reboots on startup of OS

    Hi all,
    Recently I am having this problem of my system rebooting on the starting up of the Operating System(Window XP sp2).

    I get the following error report:
    Windows has recovered from a serious error.

    Error Signature:
    BCCode : 10000050 BCP1 : F79C8000 BCP2 : 00000000 BCP3 : F792C0A6
    BCP4 : 00000000 OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 2_0 Product : 256_1

    The following files have been included in the error log:
    C:\DOCUME~1\Steve\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER0676.dir00\Mini 100608-01.dmp
    C:\DOCUME~1\Steve\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER0676.dir00\sysd ata.xml
    But the path specified in the message doesn't seem to exist(I can't find the
    WER0676.dir00 directory which is also not in the hidden files)

    I get this problem only during my first boot to the windows.
    Also Welcome screen blinks for 10 times or more.I updated my display driver(ATI Radeon XPress 200 chipset) sensing some problem there but still the problem exists.

    I am using ZoneAlarm Firewall and Avast antivirus plus spybot search & destroy.

    Can somebody tell me what's going on?
    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the link C_ntua.
    Hmm, the problem could be with the Firewall then.
    I'll have to uninstall it and see what happens.
    [I think RAM could not be a problem as only recently i checked it with memtest86.But who knows no software can be counted upon these days.]


    Thanks C_ntua for your time and help.

    Zonealarm sometimes causes weird problems keep that in mind. I switched to COMODO.
    You can also try system restore and as a last resort format

    You should get a minidump in \Windows\Minidump.
    Acquire WinDbg (debugging tools for windows) from Microsoft's homepage and then open the minidump using windbg.
    Click on the !analyze -v command that shows up and it should tell you more about where the error came from (what nodule, file). Google the file you find and see what application it belongs to.
    It also suggests what you should do to track the error. Some things give you all the info you need, but some other things require you to enable debugging functions in Windows.

    Give it a go. It's very simple, and yet oh so powerful.

    I switched to Comodo Pro from ZoneAlarm.
    Unexpected restarts have stopped for now.
    Still having the blinking screen problem though.
    Thanks all for your help and time.
