[aprssig] Windows re-booting

Check this Andrew if your using XP,

Right click on My Computer, then left click Properties. Click the 
advanced Tab, then the Startup and Recovery SETTINGS button.

Under the system failure area, UNCHECK the Automatically Restart.

That drove me crazy too until I did that. I never did find out what was 
causing the darn thing to reboot, but that made it stop.

Hope this helps,
Richard
