    Some time ago after having to reinstall Win7 my computer suddenly began to start the programme anew after I had closed Windows. The time elapsing between closing and starting varied from 2 minutes up to half an hour. Is there any place where I could check the code or alter it so that the computer remains shut off? Suggestions would be very much appreciated.

    It could be you have a HomeGroup running. Closing "Your" Windows, activates the HomeGroup.

    You should be able to leave it through Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\HomeGroup

    Not sure, though. Hope you get it fixed.

    Always happy to hear about solutions and success. Not knowing all or everyone in this Forum, I would make the bold claim that positive feedback feeds our souls.
