    I have Vista Home Premium which inadvertently switches itself off and I
    have to go through about 7 or 8 manual boots under 'choose repair option'
    which repairs a little, switches off, I reboot, it repairs a little further,
    switches off and so on until I get to 'will start up at a point.
    Any ideas as to why this maybe ? The PC has Norton 360 on it...
    TIA

  3. I'd take the Norton 360 off initially...
    Probably by a fresh install of your OS,
    and just start all over.

    Back up all your valuable data to a CD,
    data partition, or external source first.

    Then try it for awhile.

    Is it a laptop? Could be a heat issue,
    but that wouldn't need "repairs" to the OS.

    I always used AVG, Avast, and lastly Micorosoft Security Essentials. McAfee
    and Norton were always horrible expensive resource hogs. I use Comcast
    however and they have free Norton now. I just tried it experimentally and it
    is a whole different animal than it once was. I love it. It does a whole lot
    and is very light on resources. I really didn't expect to use in more than a
    couple of days, but have had it for a few months now and it has had great
    detection and has never bogged things down. Course right now I happen to be
    on my Linux partition and am using no AV, but that's beside the point.
