Movie Maker Restarts my Computer

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.video (More info?)

I have just finished editing my video, and am trying to save it as a movie.
But everytime I do that action it gets a third of the way through and then
restarts my computer. I have tried both saving the movie to the computer and
to CD, in both instances my computer restarts. Can anyone tell me why? And
how to fix it?

    Hi Medmind,

    Chances are this has to do with your video driver. To determine what driver
    is causing the problem I need you to enable driver verifier.
    Steps:
    1) Windows Key + R
    2) Type in 'verifier' and hit enter
    3) Make sure 'Create Standard Setting' is selected and hit next
    4) Click on 'Select all drivers installed on this computer' and hit Finish
    5) Reboot

    There is a possibility that your computer will crash on reboot. If this
    occurs hit F8 when rebooting just before the windows logo screen and select
    the safe mode boot option. Follow the same steps above but on step 4 choose
    'Select driver names from a list'; hit next; check the box next to any
    driver where the provider is not Microsoft; hit Finish; reboot.

    This will slow the performance of you computer a little while enabled but
    will hopefully catch the driver causing corruption. Next time you crash
    the blue screen will hopefully say something like
    "DRIVER_VERIFIER_DETECTED_VIOLATION". If this occurs please send the
    corresponding minidump (by default it is at c:\windows\Minidump ) my way.
    If you have any questions or I didn't explain something well enough don't
    hesitate to e-mail me back. Good Luck,
