Modify auto-reboot setting

Posted in Windows XP by Steve Sinchak

Since Microsoft has worked so hard to make this version "the most stable ever," then this tweak is not needed.  However, I am fairly sure that they have not perfected millions of lines of code in less than a year.  Below you will discover how to turn the auto reboot feature on and off.  This allows your computer to instantly reboot upon a system fault.  (The blue screen)

  1. Start Regedit.  If you are unfamiliar with regedit please refer to our FAQ on how to get started.
  2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\CrashControl
  3. Select AutoReboot from the list on the right.
  4. Right on it and select Modify.
  5. Change the value to 0 to disable and 1 to enable.
  6. Reboot your computer.
