    How do I stop Windows from restarting my computer, EVER?


    I sometimes come back to my computer after a break or in the morning to see that all my programs have been closed down and all my work discarded. I have lost half a dozen unsaved text files with notes and to-do lists. I would have lost hours of client work because of this, if the program I was using didn't automatically keep backups.


    I don't care what hours it considers "active." I don't want Windows to restart my computer without asking me,ever. No answer is not a yes.


    If there's no way to stop this, please tell me how to disable updates entirely. Keeping my programs and files open between sessions is more vital to me than keeping this operating system updated.


    Thank you for any help.

    :)

  2. STOP error after Windows MCE 2005 clean install

    OK, found the rest of it.

    A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

    If this is the first time you've seen Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

    Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive and make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.

    Technical information:

    *** STOP: 0X0000007B (0xF7C7B524, 0XC0000034, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)
