    THis batch file Attachment 11631 will help u to abort the shutdown. right click on that batch file and run as administrator whenever its giving that warning message. The shut down will be aborted.

    And this link will help u to completely wipe out the problem.

    If u have any doubts in executing the procedure, you are welcomed.

    Good luck
    I tried running that file as administrator and all that happened was a command prompt came up, scrolled through and my computer still shut down.
    Try typing shutdown -a in elevated command prompt.

    Windows Defender came up as clean.

    Manually typing in shutdown -a in my cmd prompt works....if I can do it quick enough.
    I've come to the solution that the problem is this error message. (It's the only one that pops up with regularity.

    Unable to initialize the security package Kerberos for server side authentication. The data field contains the error number.

    When I check for online help I get this web page: Event ID 15016 — HTTP Service Authentication

    Basically it tells me to ignore it.
    This event occurred because you are using a Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista configuration that does not have and does not require a security package for HTTP service authentication. You can safely ignore this error.
    But I don't want to ignore it...because I have to start my computer twice every time I start it...and it annoys me.

    Not really sure what to do from here.

    Oh I also found another warning under my Applications log that I seem to be getting fairly often.

    Certificate for local system with Thumbprint 4e 7c 54 42 2a 43 1a db de 20 36 77 0e b2 fa 58 fb 58 cd 44 is about to expire or already expired.
    The solution for this was Event ID 64 €” AD CS Certification Authority Certificate and Chain Validation

    But that didn't work for me..I got to step 7, and then I couldn't find the one with the right thumbprint....then after I minute I couldn't find the thumbprints at all.

    Check your heatsink fan and temperature of your CPU. Verify your RAM voltage is set correctly and your memory setting is matched to your CPU FSB properly. Download memtest86 ISO and make a CD with it. Test your RAM one stick at a time. If they all pass, test together for 24 hours. Run Chkdsk c:/r on your hard drives. Check each partition. Check your power supply voltages. Did you add any new hardware? Could your power supply be too small for your load. Post your specs, power supply model and specs.

    Two good programmes for checking what SCSIraidGURU said are cpu-z and HWmonitor. Download them here:

    CPUID
    CPUID

    Run them then take a screenshot and post results. You should also download Tune Up Utilities TuneUp America - Downloadas it allows you to tweak the Network etc.

    My CPU is at 47C/120F. It usually runs between 90F - 130F
    My entire computer is new, and since it was built for running high memory video games all the time I doubt my power supply is too small. But honestly I have no idea what most of what you said even means.
    I have no idea what power supply model I have, or how to check my memory settings or what a CPU FSB is. Or a heatsink fan. I have 2 fans in my computer, I can see them through the side.

    Keeping in mind that I know nothing about computers I don't really see how it restarting every time I turn it on could be related to a hardware error. If my power supply was too small wouldn't it just not turn on at all?

    Ok the intenets are telling me to look in the case for the power supply.
    XION: XON-580X is what the case says.
    Then there's a lot of little numbers that I can't read without taking it out...something about Max Output, Current, something else, idk it hurts my head trying to read those.

    Your power supply has a label on it. What does it say? What model and size is it? CPU-Z is a great tool.
