Any advice would be appreciated. As soon as I connect to the internet, my laptop (VPCSC) starts restarting on its own and will do it over and over again unless and until I unplug it from the internet, turn off the wireless adapter, or turn off the modem/router.
After you make sure everything is back to normal go back to System Restore and create a new restore point. Remember that when you 1st restoreyou'll lose any data created from the date of the restore point to today. Back up accordingly.
