Windows Warning User Message Confusion

  ajns 11:36 20 May 2015

Hi there,

When attempting to shut down my computer, I've had the error message 'If you shut down now, you will lose the work that you and others are doing on your computer' where as far as I'm aware, there is only me working on the computer.

Is this something i should be worried about? or is this a standard warning message that Windows 8.1 will prompt with?

Thanks in advance.

It means it hasn't finished writing (saving information from memory to the drive.

What aplications are you using just before attempting to shutdown?
