the windows shut down link

I'm having trouble shutting down xp, when I try to or restart it attempts to end program but won't unless I press "End Now". I tried ctrl alt del and it shows no applications running. I've looked at VoG's link to windows shut down but it doesn't seem to cover this problem (Forgive me if I'm mistaken on that). Anyone know what to do to rectify this. (I stupidly downloaded a small game before this started and have since uninstalled but to no avail)

Have you tried doing a 'restore' to before you installed the game?

Good idea.

The restore worked, but I've tucked that other program away for the next time, and there will be a next time.

Thanks all

No problem - please put a check in the 'resolved' box. Ta, G
