When I go to shut down my Operating system Windows 2000 and select "shut
down", windows goes through the shut down routine, but, now, all of a
sudden, automatically starts up right away. The only way I can get the
system to shut down is to kill the power.

Right click My Computer, go to Properties. Under Advanced and "Startup and recovery" uncheck the option to automatically restart. Now restart. If your system is bluescreening on shutdown it will automatically reboot instead of just shut down. This option allows you to see if that's indeed occuring.
