  2. I think I figuired it out. XP has a automatic restart function everytime there is a system failure. After I disabled the function a blue note appeared telling me a had a system failure that could be fixed if I figuired out what the problem was!! I guess I couldn’t expect more from Microsoft. Well anyhow atleast it didn’t restart now it just freezes after closing windows...
    But understanding it was a software failure and after uninstalling some strange programs it all worked perfectly.
