Hi everybody. I think you can see the sepcs of my comp from my profile but just in case I am writing them here. Intel P4. CPU 3.0GHz. 512MB RAM. XP PRO OS.

When I shut down the system It shuts down then comes on again, same thing as restarting it. Except from that I am happy with it..

Can you please tell me where the problem could be...

Hoe to hear from you soon

Thanks

Hi doggy, welcome to Geeks to Go! <_<

Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

Very strange. You could have a corrupted keyboard map. As I remember you can simply delete the keyboard map file, and it will rebuild on the next startup, but I don't remember the name of the file. Maybe someone else will have a better answer.
