Default Computer wont shutdown

Whenever my dad tries turning off the computer from the start menu, it always seems to restart. Resulting in my dad turning it off manually. I looked into it and going to the command prompt and typing "shutdown -s" shuts the computer down no problem. What could be causing the restart on the start menu.
