Tablet won't shut off

I recently updated my tablet, but now for some reason everytime I choose shut down my computer just restarts itself.  It won't turn off and I'm not sure what to do. 

 

I've searched through google for help, and have done three things

 

1) Deactivated wake on wifi

2) Changed the PCI card settings to automatic

3) Turned off auto restart under system failure.

 

Has anyone else had this problem or know the solution?

Re: Tablet won't shut off

Number (3) would have been my first thought since Windows may be interpreting every shutdown as a system failure. Next, try holding CTRL-S when you click the shutdown button which will force closure. Be patient because it takes a while... If your PC still restarts automatically, research the manual shutdown.exe command and its various parameters. Maybe something there will provide a key... Another thought -- are you virus free? If you are under control of an invader, that could also explain this behavior.

Re: Tablet won't shut off

I'm pretty certain I'm virus-free.  I reformatted my drive with a new copy of win 7 ultimate.
