Minor Shutdown Problem

by eddie11013 / April 6, 2005 4:08 AM PDT

Lately, my computer, win XP Pro, SP2, seems to have a minor problem with shutdown/restart. I click to shut it down and nothing happens. I click it a second time and it shuts down. Same thing with restart, I click it once, nothing happens, click it a second time and then it restarts. Lately, I get the "End of Task" coming on, when it finishes and I then click 'end of task', it then shuts down. I have run the usual spyware detectors, Spybot, adaware SE, microsoft anti-spyware, AVG7. Did disc clean up, defrag, scanDisc. Thanks for any advice.

Roxio Easy CD Creator

Thanks, Mark. While I thought that I had the latest software for Roxio, it turns out I din't. I updated it and since my problem doesn't show up "every" single time, I will wait and see if this fixes my problem. As usual, I only try one thing at a time and if that doesn't work then you go on to other ideas. I printed out the suggestions from the link you gave me and will keep it handly.
Thanks again Mark.

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?
