Hi my computer restarts by its self after about 10 seconds when I shut it down. I have to pull the plug out to turn it off. Can anyone help?

I believe there are fixes for the shutdown problems with Win 9x/ME available on the MS Windows Update site.

Also you could try going to START | RUN type in MSCONFIG and in the msconfig window click on the ADVANCED button and check 'Disable fast shutdown'.

Plus the following MS knowledgeBase articles may be of help:
