Hi, Again you have posted in the wrong Forum.

Also regarding your problem about the pc gets restarted instead of shutdown I dont think its a problem with the software but its the hardware probably as far as I can detect from the small description.

Probably it looks like you have some program / trojan for guarding the registry / startup area. Try removing that program.

Re: shut down problem
 
It seems that you have StartupGuard installed, it is an utility.Startup Guard alerts you whenever a new program is set to start automatically with Windows. On initial run, it will prompt you for each existing entry, allowing you to keep it or remove it. After that, it runs in the system tray and whenever a new program is added to the startup, it will prompt you to allow it or not.
Try uninstalling StartupGuard.
Then download Spybot Search & Destroy, install it and run a check to detect possible spywares/malwares on your system.You can get it here.

i had uninstalled the startup guard a long time back.. even then the error keeps coming.. i have run spybot, the error is still coming..

Did Spybot report any spywares on your system?

Do one thing goto Spybot, then swicth to Advanced mode (Mode>Advanced)
Navigate to Tools>System Startup. Search for any entry relating to StartupGuard, if found delete it.
