Windows 7: Laptop reboots itself after I shut it down

Laptop reboots itself after I shut it down

I had an HEUR:Virus.win32generic virus detected by my Kaspersky. I coud not get rid of it, so I deleted the file that it was in. All I remember is that the file ended in avgcorex.dll.
Everything else works fine on the computer now except that when I go to start and shut down. The laptop shuts down but it turns itself back on right away. Does anyone know what I need to do to fix this problem?

Are there any BIOS settings that say to restart the system in the event of power failure?

You should be able to access the BIOS by reading through your system manual for instructions to reach the BIOS.
