When I try to close down or restart my Vista premium PC, nothing happens, I end up switching off with the computer button. Any ideas plaese.

Boot into safemode (tapping F8 on startup) and if the os is preinstalled use the Vista startup repair.

Or from the Vista dvd click here

Thanks both, I have tried this but does not make any difference, some times it shows closing down, but does not go any further.

Try Sys. Restore.

Done that three times, still the same.

Try running click here may be a glitch in the registry.

I have run C Cleaner thanks and several spyware and virus checks.
