xp rebooting on shutdown command

i have an xp system that reboots when i issue the shutdown command.

this problem was not occurring prior to uninstalling symantec antivirus.

at this point i just need the quickest solution to prevent windows from rebooting. i.e., is there a registry setting that will completely disable windows ability to reboot?

any alternative suggestions (even if they are not quick) will be happily accepted too.

P.S.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\
WindowsUpdate\AU\NoAutoRebootWithLoggedOnUsers = 1
does not solve my problem. just mentioning this (not because i
thought it would work) but because it's been suggested to
me by a number of other folks and i figure it might continue to
be suggested unless i mention i've tried it.
