Can anyone help? I have win xp sp3. When I shut down window by going to "Start" and then click "Turn Off", The computer shuts down but then it starts back up again...It acts like it was doing a restart.

try starting up in safe mode and if you can you can go into administrative tools and reset your defaults. right when you start it up press f8 a few times until you get boot options then click safe mode.
Your computer is set up by default to auto start when a problem occurs. The computer is configured to automatically restart when Windows stops responding. To view this setting, follow these steps: Click the Start button, right-click My Computer, click Properties, click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery. Under System Failure, view the Automatically restart check box.
If the Automatically restart check box is selected, Windows automatically restarts if the computer stops unexpectedly. Please take time to rate me
Click the Start button, right-click My Computer, click Properties, click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
Under System Failure, view the Automatically restart check box. If the Automatically restart check box is selected, Windows automatically restarts if the computer stops unexpectedly. If your computer constantly restarts while you are using it, or if you are trying to shut down the computer after it has stopped unexpectedly, click to clear the Automatically restart check box.
This problem is generally caused by a hanging program or the registry is corrupt.
The best way i have found to resolve the problem is download a small program called "Superfast", not only does it shut XP down it does it in half the normal time and doesn't effect the computer in any way.
You should check to see if there is a setting time where the computer installs updates, because the computer may be updating at a certain time and then restarts to finish the update. Check the setting to you might also have the computer restart every so often. hope that this helps.
The most common shut down problem is that the system will reboot rather than shutting down. In most cases, the reboot is triggered because Windows XP is designed to reboot after a critical failure. To stop windows from rebooting in case of a failure, you need to take the following steps:
Right click on My Computer, Select Properties, Click on advance tab, Click on Settings under Startup and Recovery, Uncheck the option Automatically Restart under System failure, Click Ok twice and try to shutdown the pc. If it shows any error code then let me know
What error message is being 'thrown'? If your system boots and runs take a look at the "Event Logs" on your system. They can reveal a lot of information.
Have you added any new software to your system? Have you had any "Automatic Updates"downloaded and installed? WIN XP SP3 has been known to cause a few problems. Try un-installing WIN XP SP3 and see if this helps.
Do you have a virus program and an anti-spyware program? If you do update them and run them. Let me know what happens. Binary Bob
There could be an issue with the user accounts logins. This could be corruption in the OS when you installed it or a clashing driver . I would recommend you reinstall the Operating System with the Disks and before you start installing the drivers try to shut down and see if it shuts down properly . If it does then you know the Operating system and hardware is all fine and can continue installing one driver at a time and shutdown and restarting, continue doing this until you see which driver is causing a confict with your system. I have had a problem similar to this but it was some windows updates pack that I had done one time and had to reinstall windows too and do one by one. Hope my answer gets you closer to a solution.
