Specs: Windows XP
I just rebuilt my PC and everytime I try to shut down, it reboots. I have Win XP with SP3 and the latest Radeon 7000 series drivers. I remember a few years ago, someone had the same problem and found a fix. This was to remove a file from the driver folder and paste it someelse on the C drive. That solved the problem but can't remember which file. Can anyone help.

At shutdown you are presented with a menu.

Is it set on shutdown or restart?

Thanks for your reply, but I have now solved the problem. I disabled the reboot option in the properties of "my computer" and upon shutting down, the blue screen showed me the problem file - in this case, it was nv_agp.sys, located in system32. I removed the file from that folder and rebooted and all was sweet. Thanks again for your prompt response.
