For about a month now, every time I go to shut down my PC (i.e. Start > Turn
Off Computer > Turn Off option), it just restarts. It is the weirdest thing
and I can't figure out why that's happening. Can anyone suggest some areas
to check, or if that has ever happened to you and how you solved the
All feedback is appreciated. Thanks!
