My computer is doing the same thing that the others above have indicated. I'm running Windows Vista. When I'm logging in under the administrator, it acts like it is opening up fine and then a minute later it logs off and restarts. However, when I log-in as one of the other users on the computer, it does not shut down and restart. Can you tell me what might be happening here. Thank you.

Hello it can be a virus, try to boot on safemode, and in the run menu type msconfig, disable most stuff in (at least all that you dont know there owner) and secondly enter the problem user documents and settings

the location should be like this:
C:\Documents and Settings\USER\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

make visible hidden files and delete the content of the startup, or cut it to somwhere else, you can restore it later maybe.

the startup folder contain shortcut to program to be loaded by a given user when starting windows.
