log off & close down

Over the last couple of days everytime I try to shutdown windows vista the machine just goes into a loop and does not close down it just stays on the opening window.

Anybody know what has happened

Difficult to tell without a little more information.

Have you added any new software in the last few days? While unlikely it may be woth checking for a virus or other malware.

If you press Ctrl, Alt and Delete together you will get a list of programs that are running. Perhaps one of these may be slow (or failing) to close itself down, which might require a reinstallation of that program.

It could also be hardware related (e.g. hard drive) but I would expect you to have other problems while using the system.

Good luck.
