I have recently been having a problem with restarting my computer. It no longer restarts whenever I click Restart or when a program wants to automatically restart it, it only shuts down completely. I have Windows XP and first noticed this happening after installing Wintasks, and a new downloaded program called TuneUp Utility. I removed both these programs but it made no difference. Has anyone got any idea what could be causing this?

Use the Windows System Restore utility to restore your system state to its previous working condition.

To access System Restore

click start/programs/accessories/system tools/system restore

Choose a restore date from before the problem began.

Sorry, I forgot to mention that I've already tried system restore. It appeared to temporarily fix the problem the first time I used it, but when the problem returned, system restore failed to cure it any more. I'm more concerned about what is causing the problem. I have a cloned copy of the drive that I can use to get rid of the problem, but no idea how to prevent it reoccurring. Could it be some setting that's been changed by one of the installed programs or a virus that my anti-virus program has not detected?
