Windows ME hanging on switching off

When switching off the monitor goes blank and the PC hangs - switched off by holding in the on/off button. On switching on it goes through the scan disc procedure etc.

I have carried out:
Thorough Scan disc
Defrag
Run Disk clean up
Run Skybot
Run an AV scan

Any ideas anyone?

Has it always done this? If not, System Restore to when it didn't.

have you got Norton Anti-virus installed, it may be stopping the shutdown.

"Thanks very much - what a comprehensive document.

By elimination of items in the MSCONFIG Start Up, the problem appears to be Real Player.

I have completely wiped Real Player from my PC although the ticked box still appears in MSCONFIG Start Up!

Thanks again

Bob Harris"
