Windows 7: need some help

need some help

Hello, I am a new member hoping to learn more about Windows 7.
My pc is an acer and its 6 months old.
Last week,I was online and our power popped off.
Then it came right back on and then did the same thing 2 more times.
I then turned off my modium by way of the power suge plug in.
Unplugged it at the wall. When I got back online the next day,
as soon as I turned my modem back on my pc turned on without me turning it on.
It had crashed and I gotit back up and my virus protection had crashed too.
My son in law tells me there is some sort of a setting that i can change so the next time the lights go off the pc will not turn back on.
I just looked for this setting and I have no idea what i am looking for.
hope someone can help me,
Thank you
lacjud

You are welcome. I am so glad that I could help. I will be even happier to see your friends. We will help them, too, the same way that we have helped you.

You need a surge protector with back up, like I have.
I have an APC surge protector with battery back up. Its the way to protect your computer.
