Someone i know has just bought himself a Dell machine with win7 home prem and is having a random problem with his machine. Sometimes it can just reboot its self at any random time and keeps saying that there are 17 updates to install, which he has already installed and other times, when he turns his machine on, it starts up with "Startup Repair".

When he clicks on cancel it just hangs, and when he clicks on restore nothing happens.

Has anyone else had this problem? Is it another problem with Dell, as they have been very unreliable recently.
