Fix Windows restarts when you select shutdown

    A particularly common issue that Windows users run into is that the PC does not shut down when you select the shutdown option but restarts instead.

    While this looks to be an error caused by the operating system, it sometimes hints at larger issues that users and administrators may be unaware of.

    Here is what happens usually. When you select shutdown using the Start menu, the Ctrl-Alt-Del menu, or other means, Windows runs the shutdown command but restarts the PC instead of executing the shutdown command.

    While this can be a hiccup and resolved when you select shutdown the next time, the issue may also persist so that users use other means such as cutting the power connection to turn off the computer.
