    Any idea why/what this maybe?

    My PC just rebooted and when I checked the event viewer its claiming this

    TCP/IP has reached the security limit imposed on the number of concurrent TCP connect attempts.

    what is that and why would it cause a reboot

    My AV is up to date and scanned every monday and friday.

    Was a reboot with a blue screen just before hand, or was it as though somebody had just hit the reset button?

    under sp2 any tcp port will have a limit of 10 connections per port.

    it's to stop things such has worms, the reboot could be the result of it trying to protect its self ???
