    I just updated from Image for Windows version 2.25 to version 2.26. When I finished with making a version 2.26 Image for DOS CD, I clicked on "Close" and while I was removing the CD from the DVD drive the PC began Restarting. After this "odd" Restart everything seems normal. After the "odd" Restart, I then made a Full File Backup to another Internal hard drive and a backup to bootable DVD with no problems. I don't know what to make of the Restart that occurred after making the Image for DOS CD. Any Comments on a possible cause?

    Thank you.

    IFW Tech Support said the following.

    "The driver state of the machine may not have liked when you opened the drawer. If you have any VM software running that can also tend to fight for devices and cause a reset occasionally."

    I will assume that it will not happen again. The closest thing to VM that I had installed is Sandboxie 3.35-20 Beta. I had updated Sandboxie (3.35-19 Beta to 3.35-20 Beta) and restarted the PC a few minutes before updating IFW (2.25 to 2.26) There was no sandbox running at the time.
