    It looks like 'Automatically restart' option is enabled on your computer, to disable this option go through the following steps
    --> Open Run prompt and type control press enter to open control panel
    --> You can open it by clicking Start> Control panel
    --> Switch it to Classic view
    --> Select Advanced tab
    --> Select Start up and recovery area click on Settings
    --> Uncheck Automatically restart check box
    --> Click OK> OK

    Dear friend,

    I don't know the exact reason behind this as it is a very strange problem but i can suggest you some possible solutions for this :

    1 First is that you repair your Windows using Windows Xp bootable CD
    2 Second is ,, when you have to shutdown your computer goto Start>Run or press Ctrl+R
    and type the command,
    shutdown -s
    This command will execute the Shutdown.exe file that is present in your System32 folder, and is used in background by the shutdown button

    Take Care
