I recently built a computer and it worked great and still does. However, lately it has been turning itself back on about 15 seconds after I shut it down. If I shut it down from the choose user page then it will stay off, but if i shut it off from a logged on profile it will come back on. Dxdiag detects no problems, and as far as I can tell no plug ins are loose. This occurs with pressing the physical power button on the case as well as going into the start menu and clicking shut off.

Run a command in administrative mode under dos,
Then try shutting down after it has completed it's process of scanning and replacing all bad/corrupt systems files.
If it works your problem is solved.
you'll need to enter the registry and force shutdown. A problem experienced under windows XP a lot.
Here is the reg key you'd need to change.
In the right pane choose AutoReboot/Right Click/Modify. Change value to 0 to disable and 1 to enable
You don't need to find it
Just open the Command Prompt Window (Dos Console from Start Menu-- All Programs---Accessories---Command Prompt--->Right click on it and run with Administrative Rights.)
The Dos Window will open
Then you just need to type that into the Window at Command Prompt.
Alright thank you for help, I typed in the command however when i pressed enter, nothing happened. I shut down my computer after waiting about 5mins and it still restarted. So after that I modified value to 0 and it yet again restarted
