    We have 2 computers on a home network over a LinkSys router. Both are running XP home edition with SP1. A couple of months back my partner found that to reboot her computer she had to go through the request two times before it would actually reboot. Now mine is doing the same. Can't figure out why and can't find anything in the Help section as to why.

    In other words, we have to do the "start"->"Turn off computer"->"Restart" two times to reboot.

    I figure this is something simple and I was just asleep when they passed out the bulletin on this one. Is it a built in protection against accidental rebooting or some such thing? TIA for any hlep. I am new to this forum and am glad to have found it.
