my computer randomly restarts.

Specs: Windows Vista
Ever since I got this Trendnet Ethernet USB Adapter thing my computer has been restarting on its own. When I put my computer to sleep, sometimes it will just restart. It happens when I plug in or unplug the adapter. Even when I 'Safely Remove Hardware.' I've done multiple virus scans, and nothing has shown up. I don't know what it is, but it's extremely annoying.

Possibly driver issue? Or since you mentioned sleep mode... maybe try disabling sleep mode and just do a complete shutdown?

Try updating your adapters driver?
(e.g. goto trendnets website and download the latest driver)

It could be an ACPI power setting in bio's which is incompatible with your adapter... google ACPI power settings for more information. BTW I never recommend sleep mode to anyone let alone hibernation...
