Hi Guys

Everytime I click on "Turn Off Computer" then "Turn Off"; my computer restarts instead of Shut Down. How can I get this fixed?

Cheers

Computer is restarting on Shutdown.
Right-click on My Computer -> Properties -> Advanced -> Settings button in the "Startup and Recovery" section -> Untick Automatically Restart -> OK -> OK.

This should now give you a blue screen which is a clue as to what's causing this behaviour.

If an error report comes up when the computer comes back up, submit it and see what response you get.
You quite often find that InCD causes this behaviour.
