My Comp restarting when I ask it to shut down!

Please can anybody help me. My operating system is Windows XP Home Edition and for some reason lately, whenever I select to shut down the computer, it is restarting instead. Does anybody have any ideas why this may be happening and how I can fix it? Thanks.

(If you need any more info, please ask).

Thanks VoG - the minute I saw the words "Roxio Easy CD Creator" in your link I knew what had happened. I tried installing this a few days ago and a warning window popped up saying it wasn't compatible with Windows XP so I didn't continue to install it. It must've messed with the system. However, upon uninstalling whatever it had put on the computer, it seems to shut down again.

Thanks heaps.
