How to check if pc has restarted?

#1

so i left the laptop alone and went to bed while vista was installing windows update (haven’t done it in 4 years), 6 hous later i woke up to see all my explorer, firefox and MSoffice windows closed, and when i saw MSN messanger poped up asking me to log-in, i knew my pc restarted entirely on its own since i don’t use it so i alway quit the program after my desktop has loaded, even firefox offered to restore my session.

so i’d like to know if there’s a way i can check to see if my pc has restarted while i was asleep, and what the problem was that caused it so, this is the first time its happened… does anyone have any ideas?
thank you so much for the help!:sad:

after an update windows will restart itself, it gives you a prompt to cancel it but if you wait too long then it will restart by itself.

Additionally, there will be entries in Event Log.
