Windows Computer restarts when attempting to shut down. When you shut down your Windows XP computer, does your computer restart instead of shutting down? Or does a Stop error may appear before the computer restarts? These problems are most likely caused by incompatible Roxio Easy CD Creator 5.0 or Direct CD 5.0 software or software drivers installed on your computer. In the following tutorial I'll cover the process of fixing the Windows XP reboot problem.
How to fix the Windows XP Reboot Problem:
One option is to completely remove Roxio Easy CD Creator or Direct CD.
However, in most cases the problem with with Windows XP rebooting instead of shutting completely down can be resolved by simply visiting the Roxio Website and proceeding to download and install an updated Easy CD Creator 5.0 driver for Windows XP.
If the problem is more complex and you are receiving a stop error message during boot, but the message disappears before you can write it down, you can try the following:
Right click My Computer, and select Properties
From the Advanced tab, under Startup and Recovery click Settings
Under System failure, uncheck the Automatically restart box and click OK
Now the error message will remain on the screen and you can record the error information.
