i have a problem with my computer swithcing off. i am using windows 98 se, and whenever i want it to shut down, it doesnt. it goes through all the normal procedures but when it gets to turning off, it automatically switches it self back on. i dont even press the button and this happens. if i switch off the power from the psu (main switch at the back) for a few hours and start the computer, then switch it off, it goes back to normal but if i use it again, the same thing happens.
sorry forgot to say, yes it is a new problem, started on 30/04/04, my sister was using it at the time to do some uni work. she tried to shut it down but this problem occured. could it be a virus cos i am getting a lot of spam with viruses but are deleted with norton antivirus 2000. whenever an email with a virus comes, it tells me and asks me what to do, it doesnt open the emails. i choose to delete the email from my computer. could this be the problem?
