I have two PCs that suddenly reboot.  We have ruled out any hardware issues for both of them.  The only commonality I can find is this Microsoft Fax initialization/termination in the Even VIewer.  

How do I disable or uninstall the Microsoft Fax?

Great!  I went ahead and did that.  I will test it for a few days and see if the PCs do the reboot thing.  I will let you know if that corrected the problem.

Thanks!

Can you upload the .dmp files from c:\windows\minidump to http://www.ee-stuff.com? We might be able to isolate the faulting module....

I dont believe it is a hidden folder.....

But you can always verify if it is even set to minidump...

Contro Panel>System>Advanced>Startup and Recovery, and make sure it is checked to do a small minidump, and note the directory...

If you cant boot it, then you can always use a BartPE CD to boot to an alternate OS, and retrieve the files.....

okay, I will do that.  Yeah it boots up just fine and only does the random reboot once every two weeks or so.  But it causes lots of problems when it happens.  I'll look for those files and upload them.
