Okay, I came home from work to find my desktop back from a fresh boot. This is unusual. Windows has “shut down unexpectedly” as the cause at 7:56 AM. It came back up on its own without any problems, obviously, but I have no idea what happened and I’m more than a little worried. Doing another round of backups right now, but wanted to see if someone smarter than me has any idea or can tell me what to do.

Also check out the event reports in ‘Manage’ via right clicking on ‘My Computer’. They are normally my first diagnostic step (I think Vista has something that’s a bit more involved, but it shoudl be easy enough to find).
Yeah, I spent all weekend catching up on updates, and I’m shutting down during the day and night. No problems when I used it over the weekend, and I only left it on overnight once when it was downloading something like 110 critical Windows updates and Total War: Shogun 2.
Not yet, but I’m not ready to call it fixed. I haven’t left my PC on very long since I did the updates – longest being about 36 hours. Both bluescreens before happened after the PC had been on for at least two days.
