Windows XP restarts instead of shutting down

Hello everyone,

I recently re-installed Windows XP Home Edition on my PC.

Since doing this when I try to turn the computer off using the "start" then "turn off computer" option, instead of turning off it sometimes (oddly not everytime!) restarts as if I have chosen the restart option.

It never did this before the re-install so I am sort of assuming its some setting in Windows somewhere which is dong this.

Any advice?

Cheers.
