Has your friend just installed Roxio CD creator. If so, go to Roxio and download latest updates. Without updates the XP computer will just recycle on and restarts for ever.

Have you got an anti-virus?

sounds like the MS Blast Worm to me
if you get a message that looks somthing like, "an important process has been terminated, windows must shut dwon in ..." and a countdown then it is definatly the MS Blast Worm.
To avoid getting it again, use a firewall

when i disable my firewall I usually get it once every half hour

My friend is running nero burning software. and it not showing any message before it restart. Therefore, I think It could be the driver inside was problems. Would anyone could tell me how to find it out and fix it.

Er - try installing the patch from MS for this exploit and then you won't get it at all Firewall or no Firewall.

Thanks to all of you

I went to my friend home and check with her computer, I think it crash because the tft driver had been corrupt.

I run the xp setup and re-setup again. It is back to normal now.

Thanks
