    i've a strange problem with my machine. Whenever I start my machine, after logging on the machine restarts automatically. I think it is due to a virus. I scanned my computer with Norton and Mcafee but no detection.

    maybe the problem lies elsewhere...
    but nevertheless, scan ur pc in SAFE MODE with ur anti-virus and anti-spyware (eg adaware), also use 'ccleaner' to cleare ur pc junk.
    then revert if problem still persists.

    But the system restarts properly, as it would when manually done.

    hi,
    The next worst thing is that I can't view Folder Options, neither in Tools Menu nor in Control Panel. I can't use Registry Editor or Windows Configuration Utility, as I try to run them the PC restarts automatically( properly as if you do manually).
