    When I go to start and then to shut down window and click on the shutdown button the computer reboots instead of shutting down. To shut down now I wait until the computer starts to reboot and then I shut it off manually at the box. Can anyone help me with this. Thanks:)

    Best shutdown Trouble shooter on the Web are hereauhma tshooters-shutdown
    Also Start>Help>Troubleshooting>Windows 98 Trouble shooters
    has an extensive Trouble shooter for Startup/shutdown problems.
    If you find your Troubleshoot is giving blank answers a recent Windows update caused this. The fix : Start>Find>Files and Folders> type "tshoot.inf" (no quotes)>Rt. click and select "install">Reboot

    Glad we could be of help. IIRC the 1st item is <b>Start>Run>msconfig>Advanced(tab)>disable fast shut down</b>
    I usally include that in my posts as a preface to the link but I find I've gotten lazy lately :eek:
    Glad you got it how ever it was
