Does it do it when it scans a particular file?

Try an online scan first - click here

You don't by any chance have the remnants of another virus checker on your system do you?

However the advice to do an online scan is sound

I had a similar problem with AVG although it did not restart. There were no viruses and I found that it always seemed to trip up during the scan on a clip art programme. No problems since removing the programme. Regards Carper
