Re: XP shut down sometimes restarts instead, start up paused on black screen today then continued
I did update and run A2 anti malware and it found a bunch of cookies low threat and a couple of things that it called medium threat, although I'm not sure what they were. They could have been from my actually installing something. I quaranteened those 2 and deleted the others. I haven't gotten to running the diagnostics yet.
I'm juggling a number of different things, including now considering getting a digital voice recorder and also getting ready to change to a Windows mobile smart phone from using a separate old basic cell phone and separate Palm PDA.
