Q

WinProxy computer automatically restarts

There are ten computers in our network. I installed Win2000 Pro on one computer and installed WinProxy 5 for Internet distribution. Also, this network is client/server. We have 2000 Advanced Server The problem is that the WinProxy computer automatically restarts after some time. The restart time is not specific.

What I did:
Format the HD
Reinstall the OS
Change the computer
Change its power source
Check your service settings in the MMC. If the WinProxy Service is crashing and your system is set to reboot in response to the crash, it would explain the problem. I would also check the event logs for error messages related to this event.
