Windows 10: Computer restarts without warning after log in

    Computer restarts without warning after log in

    So here is my issue.

    When I log into my computer I can do things from anywhere between 10 minutes to 1 hour before it will just pop up a "restarting" loading screen and reboots.

    I have tried removing software that was recently installed and unnecessary programs that I should have removed a while ago. I updated all my drivers. My Bios is up to date I believe. I have tried to slowly start up different services I run on the machine to narrow down which one it might be, but haven't quite worked it out. I am leaning towards (Sonar being potentially the reason, but doesn't quite make sense why that would do it).

    I thought it might have also been norton or panda that caused this which I was testing out to see if I like what they brought.

    I also know windows update were installed recently which might have caused this for me. I went into the option to change it to "notify of updates" instead of installing on it's own... but that option seems to be missing.

    Any ideas? Should I roll back some updates?

    Any help is appreciated.

    You have problems. You are going to have to do a repair install of the OS most likely. I would use Who Crashed to check the dump log to see what is causing the system to reboot. Try rolling it back to a System Restore point before this started to happen.

    Right click the Start Button, select System. Then go to Advanced system settings and click the Advanced tab. Now click the settings button under startup and recovery. If checked, uncheck the box for Automatically restart under system failure.

    That may get you a BSOD or something with a hint as to what's causing the reboot.
