    I would imagine this request has been asked many times so sorry for boring everone with this request for information.
    I have installed several pices of software which required a re-boot after which I did, but now the system will not shut down it keeps rebooting. I have to hit the switch off button as it trys to restart.
    Any ideas any one ?

    first stop the reboot

    Ok well first thing would be to stop the rebooting, press and hold f8 as it boots up boot into safe mode, now if I were you I would uninstall whatever software your talking about, what software did you install? And also right click on my computer ( desktop ) properties , advanced , startup and recovery, you can turn off the option to reboot here and this will give you an error message thatcan be used to further help .........

    Thanks to those that made a reply to me, but I still have a problem.
    I perhaps should have explained a little more all software works ok and the system run fine, its just when I sign of the machine, it just reboots instead of closing down.
    I have un-installed all software that I installed just before I had the problem, but the problem persists.

    I assume there is a file left some where that should have been removed after one piece of software had successfully installed.

    I am unfamilar with XP so any thoughts or suggestions please.
     
  7. try is this thing works. "tsshutdn 5 /powerdown " in run command. that should turn it off completely. but i'm not sure how to fix the over all problem that you got. maybe you should check MS site for this?

    It sounds like what is happening is that a service is crashing when you shutdown. and what windows does when a service crashes is reboot. Have you tried looking in the event viewer to see if anything is happening?
