How to disable automatic reboots with Windows XP SP2 – Download Squad

Windows has this way of not just telling you when it’s a good idea to reboot your computer, but nagging you incessantly until you apply.

Oh man, this app just made my day! Over the past two weeks, I have lost material for two different articles because Microsoft decided that my computer needed to be rebooted when I wasn’t around to stop it from doing so. The automatic reboot flaw feature is one of my biggest pet peeves when it comes to Windows OS. Now, with the power of this little app, Microsoft will never again reboot my machine without my permission!

  1. Windows XP Service Pack 3

    We have been getting mixed feedback from users that have installed the Windows XP SP3. One of the biggest complaints is Microsoft did not include Direct X 10. The service pack employs many features of Vista and seems to turn your current version of XP into a steppingstone for purchasing a full copy of Vista. Please be sure your current computer programs will be able to handle the transition to SP3 or you may not be able to use them anymore.
