Hello James,

what do you mean by "bug" - maybe a damaged win nt/2k that should be installed
from the scratch? I have a machine that is making those sudden resets, but
still I am in doubt are they caused by hw error, or win error. Windows reports
an error in event viewer after those restars, but in general my win2000 is
working pretty well and besides that there are no problems. It could be a sw
error (since it's recorded in event viewer) but it could also be a hw error
(since after that sudden restart machine shows a black screen with a blinking
cursor, just like it is in DOS, but without a prompt c:\). How do you mean
"broken installation" - that refers to win2k or vnc?

Thanx in advance,

                           Zoran
