Asus laptop randomly restarting

Asus M6VA Intel Pentium M: Win XP Pro: SP3.

My laptop on being shut down, randomly restarts, often several times. This has been happening for about two weeks. It makes no difference whether I shut down using the normal dialog box or using the task manager. The only software I have added is Comodo firewall.
Any ideas for solving this will be gratefully received.

how old is it and do you use it in bed ;-)

If its since the Firewall, remove it to see if it sorts it

Two years old, and it is sat on a cooler, so it is as cool as they come. No, I don't use it in bed..(the laptop that is) ;-)

Woodchip
Removed Comodo, made no difference, reinstalled Comodo.

I have also checked the auto start-up progs, and nothing stands out.

Have a look in Event Viewer, it may point you in the right direction

I ran sfc /scannow, after copying i386 into C:/.
This did the trick, and for the moment my laptop is back to normal.
Thanks for the help.
