XP keeps rebooting when Shut Down Selected

Hope someone can help with this strange one, last night I went to shut down my xp pro system as I always do but it rebooted rather than shut down. This happens every time now! The only things I have done is download a 3 day pass to a game on Steam called Day of Defeat, we also had power cuts here during the day, I have a surge protector so I don't think this could have caused the problem. I've read an earlier post which identified Roxio has a possible cause. I have this on my system but never had this problem till last night! Any help would be great.

Thanks Vog had a look through but nothing seems to help I've used system restore back a week but still the same. I was interested in the bit about usb connections one thing I do remeber was leaving my tom tom connected when shutting down a few times but I'm not sure that could be causing the problem.

Vog/Fruit Bat sorted it out, turned out to be a virus! trusty old AVG helped me out in the end, but thanks for your help!
