Maybe because Windows has a problem and needs to shut down?

What are your specs?
Is your machine stable?

more information may stop me being sarcastic ;)

If I recall (it was a while ago), I had a somewhat similar problem with xp and the goty edition. Not sure if this will help but.... the game originally wanted to open in a res like 800x600 and I had problems with it. Try, just for fun to set your monitor at 800x600 and then try to open the game again. Hope it helps.
