36 min reboot bug

Recommended Posts


For whatever reason my XP computer reboots on the 36th minute after the hour fairly suddenly and regularly. For example 8:36, 9:36, 10:36, etc - doesn't matter what I'm doing, the screen goes as if the power was dumped. I've tried downloading the latest definitions of SuperAntispyware and it doesn't seem to help. Do any of you know anything about any bug causing problems like this? Appears to be some sort of bug. My machine hasn't rebooted in safemode yet but in normal, it's as if someone pulled the power cord, reboots just fine and runs another hour just great.

Case closed and here’s the deal for anyone else faced with a similar issue. It appears that one of the Google products left some ‘update’ piece that was causing the crashes even after the product had been uninstalled. After reading through the Windows Event Viewer, I could see a remnant, “GUpdate” that was suspiciously coming up in that log and in deleting the “Google” entries from my registry, I was able to get the random reboots stopped. Removed from these two branches of my registry.
