I would like to describe this most common problem for windows users, solution is very simple. This hint probably shall save a lot of nerves and energy of people fighting this problem. If you don’t know still i will tell you! This case is actually very common with windows XP, but i advise you to do it on all windows versions just in case.
So here we go:
In Windows 7: Right click “Computer”, select properties (or press “win+pause/break”). Then go to “Advanced system settings” then click “Advanced” tab, choose Startup and Recovery Settings. Uncheck “Automatically restart check box under System failure. Click OK several times. That’s it!
In Windows XP the process is almost the same. In Windows Vista it is actually the same.
