SHUTDOWN NOT POSSIBLE ANYMORE

Hello guys, one of my pcs running Win 98 refuses to shut down. At the end of the day when I go to start, Shutdown, it proceeds to do so, goes blank for a few seconds, but then instead of displaying its readiness to be shut down, it restarts. What's going on? Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Check for viruses. Also check to make sure you have not selected "Restart" instead of Shut Down by mistake.

If you are using a surge protector, take it off and test. I have found these sometimes to create a problem of the system rebooting on shutdown.
