hi everyone.

the last 3 days its taken ages for the computer to log off and shut down, while in the past its always been pretty quick.

any ideas why this should suddenly occur?

thanks.

What is the operating system and the hardware spec of the machine?

Have you added / removed any software?

sorry, i forgot to mention that.
not sure what you want so here is some info.
xp pro service pack 2.
512 MB Ram.
80 GB hard drive, samsung sp0822n.

this is probably not what you wanted but don't know what else to put down.

If you hit Ctrl+Alt+Del, the Task Manager will appear.

It will indicate any Processes still running (from the Processes tab). This should give a clue as to what is extending the Shut Down period.
