Default Sony VaioPCG-6J1M win't shutdown / restarts

Machine has just been restored, and when asked to shutdown, it restarts.

I've googled, and have had no luck so far.

Has anyone got any ideas?

I've tried these sites
Windows XP restarts when you try to shut down your computer

Windows XP Shutdown Troubleshooter

I've already use 'My Vaio' to update the machine.

I've applied XP SP3

No joy...

Restore it again. SP3 is a Beta applicaiton and would not help you out.

Windows XP restarts unexpectedly or restarts when you shut down the computer
Windows XP Shut Down and Automatic Reboot Problems
Computer Automatically Restarts After You Upgrade to Windows XP

There are some more links to try. Also is your power options set to restart?

Prior to the restore, the laptop had virus', malaware, droppers, etc, and restarted instead of rebooting.

I restored the machine again last night, and it continues to reboot instead of shutting down.

Go to the Virus area and make sure that there are no viruses on there and all that other jazz. If there was a virus on the machine it can still affect Restored data.
