I am looking for an ap for my desktop with XP that does for Booting Up something akin to the progress display that XP does provide for Shutting Down. Can anyone suggest such an ap?

If there was to be such an app, it would have been done. But as all apps are closed as you shutdown, that app would stop and, well. Microsoft would had to put such into the operating system.

You bring up a good point. Is it time to forget these old systems and move to consumer oriented, polished systems that shield the users from the nuts and bolts?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
