To compliment this site and all the online computer tutorials on offer I have setup a computer help forum where you can go to ask your questions.


This tutorial will show you how to disable automatic restart in Windows 7. Your PC might be stuck in a loop through having some kind of hardware, software failiure. If you have automatic restart turned on you wont be able to login to the system or the PC will continue to reboot without loading the operating system. This will stop you correcting the problem because you will not be able to access the logs and so on. If you have come to this thread before having system failure you can follow the steps below.

If you have come to this after having system failure you should boot your pc in to safe mode. This can usually be done by pressing the f8 key after the first splash screen on computer boot up.

Steps to take,

Open the control panel you will see the screen print of the control panel below. Yu need to click on "System"
