Weird overnight computer restart

By luketigers ·
EDIT: Problem solved - Friend lied that they turned it on. Lock post or something (:

Hi, below I have a log copy of my event viewer from the time I shutdown last night to the time I walked in this morning and saw my computer on on it's own. Setpoint was asking for the final register info, and a USB device had been used apparently (probably the mouse and linked to the Setpoint info). Nothing else seems to be touched but my computer definately reset itself.

Is this a virus or external hacker? I have only been playing games so I doubt I have opened a bad link anywhere. TY in advance.

Custom dynamic link libraries are being loaded for every application. The system administrator should review the list of libraries to ensure they are related to trusted applications.

Name resolution for the name timed out after none of the configured DNS servers responded.

The shadow copies of volume C: were aborted because the shadow copy storage could not grow due to a user imposed limit.

I have seen several instances where an internal modem was the cause of mysterious reboots at night.
It may have nothing to do with what you are experiencing, but try yanking the dialup modem from the board if present. - an esay test assuming you use broadband.
