If you install the Microsoft Windows XP hotfix that is described in Knowledge Base Article 818078, it deletes three values in the Registry key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Volatile Environment. These are HOMEDRIVE, HOMEPATH and HOMESHARE. If some other third-party application needs these Registry values, they will then have problems. Microsoft has a new hotfix that will fix the problems caused by the earlier hotfix. If you need it, contact Microsoft Technical Support and ask for the hotfix described in Knowledge Base article 824898. Note that you may get charged for this call.
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?
