Database automatically shutting down and restarting

My 10g DB keeps shutting down and starting automatically on my Windows 2003 machine. This is new behavior and I don't believe any new changes have been made to this machine.

My 10g DB keeps shutting down and starting automatically on my Windows 2003 machine. This is new behavior and I don't believe any new changes have been made to this machine. I see in my event viewer:
ACTION : 'STARTUP' DATABASE USER: '/' PRIVILEGE : SYSDBA CLIENT USER 

By default, Oracle will stop and start the instance when the server is shut down and started back up. Check your...

server's Event Viewer to see if the server was rebooted.

An admin can also start and stop Oracle by simply restarting the OracleServiceSID service in Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Services. Make sure you system administrators are not stopping and starting this service.
