Why does Windows 2000 reboot and display the message

A. An event log corruption usually causes this behavior. To resolve the problem, boot the Recovery Console (RC), and rename the event log files %systemroot%\system32\config\AppEvent.Evt, %systemroot%\system32\config\SecEvent.Evt, and %systemroot%\system32\config\SysEvent.Evt to .oldEvt. Then reboot the system, and it should behave correctly.
