A couple of weeks ago my XP commenced crashing, no notice just boom reset. At first I though it might be a memory issue but I have XP on another parition and it does not suffer from the same problems, so it must be software related.
The event viewer makes some reference to the side by side error Resolve Partial Assembly failed for Microsoft.VC80.CRT. This occurs roughly every two hours.
PC has been scanned for Spyware and Viruses, so I can only assume that maybe a trojan or something is trying to access the outside periodically and failing, forcing the reboot.
Any ideas? It is starting to get a bit annoying and refuse to reinstall XP.
