For some odd freakin\' reason, whenever I use gigastudio, after several minutes of composing, the computer decides to restart for some reason. I can\'t get any work done without it restarting for no apparent reason...
It sounds like the good ol\' msg32.exe that we all know and love. If you are using Win XP try going to the system control panel/advanced/starup recovery and unclick \"restart\" on system failure. This will at least let you see if it is msg32 that is blowing up.
Is this a setup which was previously working fine?
Has anything changed with the system? Any new hardware, software?
Are all the cooling fans working?
Is it getting warmer there? Is this a new machine which may have only been used in winter months?
What you are describing is not normal behavior. Is it possible this machine has never been \"torture tested\" so to speak, and could always have had had the problem, unknown to you? If that\'s not the case, some condition will have necessarily changed to trigger this kind of misbehavior. You just have to eliminate the variables and find it.
Even though you perceive the problem as being related to Giga use, sounds to me as if you need to rule out the possibility that it\'s the Sasser worm that\'s spreading across the planet just now. Sasser reportedly causes repeated spontaneous system reboots, just as you\'re experiencing.
If you\'re handy with the Windows Regedit tool, the quickest way to check for Sasser is to go to
