    computer reboots during startup

    For some unknown reason, my main computer is rebooting(i don't know if it's more like a shutdown, because it I see a blank screen, could hear the hardrives turning off, then the computer restarts and I could hear the harddrives turning on again) itself during the startup process. It reboots/shutdowns right after the windows loading screen and before my desktop actually shows up.

    I've turned off the "Automatically restart" feature and get the following error message:

    "The Windows Logon Process system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0xc0000022 (0x00000000 0x0000000)
    The system has been shutdown."

    The computer works fine in safe mode.

    The 0xc0000022 error is a security error. A regular user does not have rights to read a file that one of our software programs use.

    Some 3rd party programs can errantly change the permissions on a file
    I'd go to safe mode and see what programs are starting up...

    Goto Start, then Run, then type in msconfig.

    From there goto the Startup tab and see what's running. If you don't know what is good and bad, post a screenshot here and myself or others can check to see if any startup programs are conflicting and causing this problem.

    I'm betting it's a program of some kind, or virus caused something to mess up the logon process.

    it could also be your PSU or ur video card, cause I used to have my pc reset constantly after I it went bad and I removed the video card and it worked fine

    could be the same thing or could be something that you added in your pc or upgraded (driver wise)
