Quite interesting problem, never heard of it - Does the PC really initiate a
shut down or does it switch off immediately?
To troubleshoot this, my further question would be: Does the event log offer
any information what happened when the system was shut down? Any Problems
listed in Problem Report?
Nero does actually cause much trouble on Vista Systems, the first Vista
Ready version as the recent one - it's not causing problems within Nero, but
for Movie Maker & DVD Maker, so it would be interesting what happens if Nero
is removed from the system.
I had to disabled alle Codecs & Filters installed by Nero since they caused
DVD Maker to work anymore.
Not an easy-to-fix problem - if you think it's a bug you can call MS support
for free :-)
... and good night (In europe however)
