    If you cannot restore your machine by starting on safe mode (F8 key while is booting up), then going to start, then "all programs" then "system options" then "system restore (you can choose the last date you remember your machine was working properly)", then your best bet is to just reprogram it. Make this however your very last option. If you can restore your computer in safe mode, I recommend you to open a web browser and under "tools" go to windows update and download the latest security updates for your computer and then run a complete scan for viruses, spyware and anything that my damage your computer. A tune-up will be needed, so defragment your hard disk and run a system cleanup.

If it gets into windows and then shutsdown after a very short time. Then start it again and click on the start menu A.S.A.P. click on the run command and enter:
shutdown -a
Then O.K.

If it no longer shuts down after typeing in that command then you have a virus and need toi run anti-virus software to clean it out. If this is the case then you also have the virus in some of your restore points and they need to be cleaned out as well.

Good luck. Be more specific about at what point it starts to restart.

At what point does it restart? is it random or is it right after you login to windows, ect...? this will make a difference as to what steps are needed to fix the problem if the system restore doesn't work.

I can't shut down my PC,It restarts again!


This behavior may occur if Windows stops responding during a typical operation or during the shutdown process. By default, the computer is configured to automatically restart when Windows stops responding. To view this setting, follow these steps:
  1. Click the Start button, right-click My Computer, click Properties, click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Start up and Recovery.
  2. 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. If you clear this check box, you receive an error message when the computer stops responding. This error message may describe the cause of the problem. You can also review the system log in Event Viewer to view the critical stop error that occurs when the computer restarts. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 308427 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308427/ ) HOW TO: View and manage event logs in Event Viewer in Windows XP To configure the way that Windows responds when the computer stops unexpectedly, follow these steps.

Note: You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group to complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings may prevent you from completing this procedure.
  1. Log on to the host computer as either an administrator or the owner.
  2. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
  3. Under Pick a category, click Performance and Maintenance.
  4. Under the or pick a Control Panel icon section, click System.
  5. Click the Advanced tab, and then click Settings under Startup and Recovery.
  6. Click to select any one of the following check boxes under System Failure:
    • Write an event to the system log
    • Send an administrative alert
    • Automatically restart
    At last if nothing works then clear the "Star up"
  7. C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Start up
    If you are not satisfied then If you are using XP then repair it.

thanks

How to restart or shutdown a computer through a remote desktop connection


When you are connected to another computer by remote desktop, did you ever notice that the shutdown and restart options are not there. The computer that you remote desktop to must already be on. But if you regularly use remote desktop, at some stage you will want to restart the remote computer from where you are. For example you might install a program and you need to restart the computer to finish the installation. If this doesn't happen automatically then you can follow the steps below.

How to Reboot or Shutdown a Machine from Remote Desktop Connection using Windows XP?
  1. Open the run box by pressing the WINKEY and the letter R on the keyboard.
  2. Type the following command into the run box: shutdown -r -f
  3. Press Ok.
  4. This will restart the remote computer.
If you would like to shutdown the Windows Xp remote computer you can type: shutdown -f
When you are typing these commands in you must type it exactly right. If you miss a space or a dash it will not work.

Restart a remote computer using Windows Vista or Windows Seven.
On these newer operating systems the run box is almost obsolete. You only have to open the start menu and type these commands into the search bar at the bottom. This area acts as a run box and you can type commands into this.

Hi im Rain.
Lets try a System Restore to go back before this problem accured.
  • Click start
  • Then click all programs
  • Now you will need to click accessories

You will want to restore your computer to a earlier date. This setting is already selected.

My hp computer restarts unexpectedly


Does it occur when switching to or from a specific user? If so the profile is bad.

If it happens on all users try running a repair on the operating system.

Unexpected restart


usually you can just right click to desktop program and then go to properties. From there you should see an option that says Run: and next to it you can choose how the program will start up in either normal window, maximized, or minimized.
