All I can show you
by MarkFlax Forum moderator / March 21, 2009 10:22 PM PDT

is how my ASP.Net State Service Properties > Log On tab is set up.

Log on as "This account:" = NT AUTHORITY\NetworkService

But my own has a completed password field (and confirm password field) so I can't help you with that.

COM+ Event = C:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs

Com+ Sysapp = C:\WINDOWS\System32\dllhost.exe /Processid:{02D4B3F1-FD88-11D1-960D-00805FC79235} , not sure if that's going to help.

All of the above are set to Manual.

Did you disable Application Layer Gateway Service? Mine is set to manual but I seem to remember disabling this once, and lost all internet access.

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?
