Windows 7: PC with Windows 7 reboots every hr or so

PC with Windows 7 reboots every hr or so

**EDIT** sorry i mistakenly pushed enter while typing and couldnt update the thread title.. sorry

Hi,
i have had windows 7 64bit version installed for a couple months on my pc, and these 2 days it's kept rebooting. it goes off (no shut down message, it all happens all of a sudden), and after a second or 2 the machine boots up again. before loading the os the pc prompts me to choose if i want to start windows normally. i press enter and windows starts up with no problems at all. when a system error occurs, after rebooting it usually notifies me that the system was recovered from an error. but it displays no message.

now, my question is this. i heard that before the coming out of the windows seven final version, microsoft would have you install an update that reboots your machine every 2 hrs to "suggest" people buying the os... how kind of them, really... whatever, is this possibly the case? if this is, i guess i gonna downgrade to windows vista till i can buy windows 7...

Please navigate to the C:\Windows\Minidump folder.
Zip up the contents of the folder and upload/attach the .zip file with your next post.

if his windows has never detected any errors there won't be a Minidump folder. on the other hand J0nDaFr3aK, can u do a search for any files ending .dmp and zip up and post those up instead?

also, i believe 7100 expires 2-3-2010. now is that 2nd march or february 3rd, lol?
