Ive got a small and rather annoying problem with a netbook I have. The problem is it won't shut down then you tell it to shut down it just restarts, its using windows xp.
Its an Asus. Ive tried using the CMD to restart and then shutdown to shut it down, System restore, check disk, disabled AV software and I think ive tried more, but can't remember :P thought i could put up with it but i cant take it anymore!
It could be a registry related problem or possibly malware. Can't you re-image this netbook?
I've scanned it with numerous different scanners and nothing has shown and I can't really re-image it as it's hooked up to work
Check power management settings on the wired and wifi network cards.
I've seen it occasionally, where these are waking a machine as soon as it powers down.
Worth a try.
