Disable Automatic Restart

Using Registry Editor:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\CrashControl

DWORD = AutoReboot

0 = Auto Restart Disabled

1 = Auto Restart Enabled

 

Not using Registry Editor:

System Properties - Advanced - [Startup and Recovery]Settings

Remove the checkmark from "Automatically Restart" in the System Failure section.

    Worked like a charm! Of couse you have to edit the registry with another program like ERD Commander Pro 2003 my personal favorite. Can see my bug code now. Good find. It does take effect as soon as you exit out of your editor and reboot. Thanks Super Admin. Just gotta know what you are doing.

    What poster #1 said. Perhaps there's an undocumented flag that goes into boot.ini ?

    Was excactly what was missing ! I used 'Ultimate BootCD for Windows' kit to access the drive. At the menu : Start > Programs > Registry Tools > Regedit (Remote) -> choose user profile name , and continue with the above ! ( To make your own kit goto http://www.ubcd4win.com/ Free &/GPL !!) Good luck. Mondie .

    My pc is getting restarted every time i try to do a shutdown , so i was doing a hard power off . After trying Not using Registry Editor: System Properties - Advanced - [Startup and Recovery]Settings Remove the checkmark from "Automatically Restart" in the System Failure section. I am getting the following error : stop:c000021(fatal system errror) this windows logon process system terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0 *00000008 sign 00000000)the system has been shut down. does un-checking the automatic restart is resulting in this problem , or there any other changes to be done along with this .

    For comment # 1, you can use this by doing a Remote Registry too, not really Windows. Why wouldn't you follow the GUI if u were in Windows !!! Also, if your GUI made settings are not getting sustained, you can use this . hope this helps

    This is a great troubleshooting tool in the event of a crash. You people with continuous re-start problems need to search for other symptoms.
