Why does my PC always auto restart after the screen appeared the message: IT'S SAFE TO TURN OFF YOUR COMPUTER!
And I have another question: Why can't I use Search Files application in windows Me. When I type the filename and click Search button, it doen't run.
It haven't appeared this problem before.
Please help me.

Common Causes of Shutdown Problems

The Fast Shutdown registry key is enabled.
There is a damaged Exit Windows sound file.

The computer contains incorrectly configured or damaged hardware.

I do not have the same problem as Mike but I do have problems with shutting down. Anytime I shutdown or restart, the computer takes over a minute to save my changes. This only started to happen after I formatted my hard drive.
