Hi JC,

Where are you getting this error? Have you tried loggin on to Safe Mode?

It is happening when I am gone. My computer is fine when I leave the house,
but when I get home at night I notice that it has re-booted itself. When I
check the event log I find that error. It appears to be linked to the webcam
driver service, but I unplugged the cam and there is no driver service auto
starting that I can detect.
