When i shut down into hibernation mode, the computer seems to freeze at the end and ihave to turn off the power to shut down the computer. Often when i restart my user icon is simply missing and i have to drop down to the turn off computer sign and restart. Other related problem is despite being the only user i sometimes get the message than only the administrator can make changes and refuses to allow me to make various changes;
Hi, to explain more simply, the computer goes through the shutdown process but stays locked on to the final step ie Windows is recording your parametres (Its a french version of XP but thats the basic translation) but nothing happens so i have to turn the power off. At the same time this appeared i also have a problem with the desktop icons, all the descriptions under each icon are highlighted in blue and i cannot get them back to normal; Any ideas Cheers Pete
How long do wait as windows is Saving Your Settings? this can take 20 seconds or more.
You may have corrupt system files - type sfc/scannow ino the run box and press enter you may require the XP disc in the CDrom drive
