Everytime I click on the StartMenu to Shut down, it restarts the computer instead of shuts down.  This is really starting to bother me, cause every time manually turn off the computer on the restart, speed disk comes on the next time I boot up.  I'm sure this is a simple problem to fix, but i don't know how to, please help.

SYMPTOMS
========
 
When you try to shut down your computer, your computer may restart instead of shutting down.

To work around this issue, disable Fast Shutdown:
 
1. Click Start, click Run, type "msconfig" (without the quotation marks), and
   then click OK.
 
2. Click the General tab, and then click Advanced.
 
3. Click to select the "Disable fast shutdown" check box, click OK, and then
   click OK.
 
4. Restart your computer.

If your OS is win98 SE,there is not "disable fast shutdown"feature.
If the problem happened serveral days ago,you can try to restore the registry.
Following is the steps:
1.start->shutdown->shutdown the system and reboot to dos mode.
2.c:\windows\command>scanreg/restore
3.choose the date before the problem happen then enter.
4.Reboot the system.
