Press Man 19:57 15 Oct 2005

Hi Guys,

When shutting down my pc, nine times out of ten I get an end programme dialogue box saying "sysfader end now". I have run NAV, Ad-Aware, SBS&D, XoftSPY and HJT with nothing found?
Anybody got any ideas as to what this is and how to stop it?
Thanks in advance of your help.

If you are on XP SP2, there seems to be a problem with its firewall and third party firewalls - do you have either enabled?

sysfader - sysfader.exe - Process Information
"Process File: sysfader or sysfader.exe
Process Name: NVidia Graphics Utility

sysfader.exe is an process belonging to the Nvidia graphics device range and is bundled alongside these products. This is a non-critical system process although it should not be terminated unless suspected of causing problems"

Yes I am running ZA firewall. If it is a Nvidia process or a firewall error is there anything to be done?

You could turn off the XP firewall - best anyway if you have a third party firewall running.

You can also turn off the sysfader.exe




and from there disable it

problem is ZA I have switched to avoids the stiff setting used by za which causes hang ups etc

XP firewall is of, running ZA free version. Can not find SysFader in services?

get this click here
right click on the column bar select "show image path", set refresh to every 5 seconds, leave it running until sysfader shows up and see where it's running from, then kill the process in processexplorer and rename the sysfader.exe to sysfader.___ or something. a little more complex if it's a .dll

  splork 18:29 16 Oct 2005

Sorry, I meant, the solution is more complex if it's a .dll - you can find it by searching for sysfader in dll's or handles with the Find function
