    Running VPC 2004 (pre-SP1)
    Host: Dell Dimension 2600, 2GB Ram, Windows XP Professional.
    Guest: Windows XP Professional (pre-SP2). 384MB RAM allocated for each VPC
    3 Guests running on Host.
    All 3 guests are running PC/anywhere host and are remote controlled through
    the network via IP.

    When I shutdown or restart any of the 3 guest PCs through their Start Menu,
    the Host PC hard reboots.

    Any ideas, Thanks.
