Win-XP Refuses to shut down



I know from the title this sounds like a hundred other posts but it's not as it seems. I tell windows to shut down and it does shut down but immediately restarts?
I am at a loss to figure out why this is happening? I have spent all day reading different places and haven’t run across anything that might be of help.
If you have seen this problem or have any idea what might cause it please post your answer.

You may be have a critical error but do not see it and if so then doing the following may let you see what is happening.

Right-click on My Computer, click Properties, click the Advanced tab. Under “Startup & Recovery,” click Settings. Under “System Failure,” uncheck the box in front of “Automatically restart.”
Well Well,
I tried your solution and it caused the BSOD when shutting down. It referenced a file by the name of nv_agp.sys. I deleted this file by making a copy of it on floppy and deleting the original file. I then rebooted. After doing all of this the computer once again shuts down normaly. Now the question is how did these things go wrong? I been using this computer for two years and after restoring from a true image backup made 20 days ago this problem cropped up?
Any way thanks for the advice. It helped me solve the problem.
Maybe the image got corrupted in that part or something.
Thats a file from the nvidia drivers and its nothing new that sometimes video drivers act this way.
if you found a faulty nv file, then uninstall the video drivers, and install some new ones.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
