A service is terminating unexpectedly and rebooting my server. The company who provides the program involved will give no help. Can I change some machine settings to prevent a reboot occurring when this specific service fails? Screenshot of error is attached.
Have tried stopping restart on system failure to no avail.

If you go to services.msc you should find this service in the list.  When you right click and choose the properties of the service there should be a recovery tab.  In this tab you should be able to set the recovery options for this service to "Take No Action" or "Restart the Service" and remove the "Restart the Computer" action.

Thanks for that. I had looked there and didn't notice that the first failure was set to restart the computer! Teach me to open my eyes.
