Ok, so, the problem is...

All of a sudden without me fiddling with any settings my computer has decided that it won't shut down when I click the shut down button. Instead it restarts like it normally would if I had clicked the restart button. I am running XP Home. And thats pretty much it!
Any ideas why this is happening?

Thanks for the link ictdesk but it seems that, that wasn't the issue.
Turns out that I had a virus in my registry. No idea how it got there but its gone now and everything seems to be working now.
