I have a problem when logging off XP for the first time after the PC has been booted, it takes around ten minutes before it finally logs off. Afterwards, it is fine and I can log on and off normally until the next time the PC is rebooted. Has anyone any clue as to why this is?
Put your windows CD into the CD ROM and hold the shift key (the one with arrow pointing up, just above the Ctrl key on the left of your keyboard). Holding shift for a few seconds will stop the Windows CD from auto running, but the drive will still spin up to read the disk then spin back down again. Once it has spun down you can release the shift key.
Now click Start/All Programs/Accessories and choose Command Prompt. Type in
and hit enter. This will check and replace any damaged system files.
Thanks for that. However, I am curious as to why the problem is only present the first time of logging off and not there subsequently, if it was a damaged file I would have thought it would affect it continuously?
