    I have an Intel P3 Pc running WIN98 SE. When I shut in down using start/programs/shutdown, it exists windows but then reboots again.

    Help greatly appreciated.

    Check these out:

    Q132776 Computer Hangs or Reboots at Shutdown with NetWare Client

    If none of these help, can you let us know if this has only just started happening, if you have installed any new software, and modem and networks details.

    The choices in the Shut Down dialog box often stay where last used.ie restart Next time you want to shut down make sure the option selected is Shut Down not restart. <img src=/S/cool.gif border=0 alt=cool width=15 height=15>

    I found the problem. In the BIOS the wake on modem/LAN was enabled. Because the modem is always left on whenever the phone rang the PC would restart.
