It is possible you either installed a program recently, Norton auto protect, or deleted a file, a registry error, could be many things. I would try the simple route and do a system restore to a point before this. Many people scoff at SR but it comes in very handy in a case like yours. Also try to think of what you may have done differently or added, etc...
Hope this helps, Paul
Hi to All cnet teckno?s
I am running Winn XP Pro. The other day I was doing my hard drive maintenance I.E. virus check then defrag, and after I had performed my maintenance I went to shut down my PC, so I clicked on start\turnoff computer, and the turn off computer box appears, and you should get THREE options, you can either Stand By or Shut Down or Restart. My problem is, I can not shut down my PC, I can only Turn off or Restart, so on shutting down my PC when it gets to the bios screen it reboots, very annoying, so I have to keep my finger on the start button to switch off. So please can any one HELP or explain, what I have done wrong and how to put it right. Many thanks to any one that replies.
