unable to shutdown

My windows shutdown will restart itself automatically everytime I shut down the PC. Another query is, how can I have 2 network settings in windows 2000. This is because I'm travelling to 2 diferent company every now and then. I had to change my network settings i.e DNS, IP, Proxy accordingly to the company that I'm in.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

First question: Go to your registry and find HKLM -> Software -> Microsoft -> Windows NT -> CurrentVersion -> Winlogon and make sure PowerdownAFterShutdown is set to "1"

Second question: 2 network settings = 2 NICS. You can get a PCMCIA card or a usb network adapter so that you can plug into your ethernet port at one site and your PCMCIA card (or usb adapter) at the other site.

If you want to connect to two different networks, but use your same HW, try a program like MultiNetwork Manager from Globesoft:

Is there a freeware that work similarly to Multinetwork Manager? Or is there any other solutions? I've tried using the System Restore in Win XP to revert back and forth to the network settings that I want, but it's not available in Win 2000.
