    I am running windows xp on my computer. Many times, when I use winmx or kazaa lite my computer will just reboot all by itself. This screws up all my file transfers. Has this happened to anyone? Is there a way to fix this?

    Yep this has happened to me before.

    File sharing apps seem to eat up resourses or something because, if I have a lot of Internet Explorer Windows open and then open kazaa, sometimes the comp will get stuck and eventually crash to the point of restarting.

    Be careful, this happened once really bad to me and I had to format and re-install everything!!!!

    One thing I've learned though, dont open filesharers when you have firewalls running (especially zonealarm). And if your computer pauses before it crashes try leaving it for a moment and see if it will free itself up cause you dont want to be adding task after task to your computer when its falling unstable!!

    One thing, whenever my computer starts again, I always find my file transfers start again from where they left off, I did not expect this!
