turn off windows xp

  fstr 11:12 19 Dec 2003

For some reason I suddenly have to turn off my computer twice before it turns off I cant think of anything I have installed or done to cause this.

Can you explain a little better the process you're using to turn off, fstr? And have you tried a System Restore, to a date before the error started occuring?

Asabove, how do you shutdown, like everything in windows there's several ways to do it. If you press the power buttn then select shutdown the following may apply:

Just wondering it you've got a "sticky" power button. If it's always twice then it's likely to be software, but if, sometimes the pc shuts down ok, and others you have to have 3 attempts it might be somthing else.

So you go to Start > Turn off Computer > Turn Off, it then restarts and you have to go to Start > Turn off Computer > Turn Off again, at which stage it turns off????

Have you tried System Restore yet?

Have you tried shutting every program you can down, the shutting the pc down? Maybe somthing's causing a reboot.
