Restart instead of Shutdown.

Sometimes my Windows ME PC restarts rather than shutting down and when it restarts in this way Scandisk runs as it has detected a inproper shut down.I have reformatted and reinstalled twice and have changed my antivirus to AVG as I have read that Avast may have some shutting down problems. I am beginning to think it could be a hard drive problem . Any ideas.

Control Panel, Power Options,

Do you have an APM Tab?
If so tick the box for Advanced Power Management

No APM tab

Resolved.
It would appear that it is the latest update of ZoneAlarm which has caused the problem. I am now using a earlier version of ZA which does not cause this problem.
