I have a PC running Win2k sp3 wichh has now decided to reboot every time i shut down. it was a fresh install with Office 2000, Front Page 2000, winzip & Nero express. It DID originally shut down ok, now not.
Has something become corrupted?
Will shutdown OK in safe mode.

Tried all that, hav to resort to re-installing & adding drivers/apps one at a time to see if that helps. Was hopin for a 'quick fix' ;-)

This is pretty common with some name brand computers.  Check for a "power management" driver or patch on the download section of the manufacturers website.  If it exists, install it.   That's fixed the problem with almost every PC i've had the problem with.
