I have a brand new Desktop PC - running Windows 7 - 8gb ram - iTB HD and I have to say it is running perfectly well. However, when I shut it down yesterday I noticed that the PC restarted itself and stated ' windows had recovered from an unexpected shut down' blue screen, and it gave me details of a mini dump file for the error. The mini dump file is empty so nothing reported there. In the event log it states the issue was 'kernel' as follows: The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.
My husband suggested I shut down too soon before allowing ie to close properly. Any suggestions welcome, my concern is, should I be worried, has this done any damage?, it has not done it since and I have no other error messages. Is it possible some programme was still running and caused the PC to reboot? All answers appreciated. Thank you for your time.
