carrying on from my closed post; WinXP Home SP2 on BBand with Thompson SpeedTouch USB 330 modem since installing F-Secure Internet Security 2007 OEM has developed a problem shuting down WinXP.

I didn't think F-Secure had anything to do with it till my brother who i also got F-Secure 07 for started with the same identical problem after installing F-Secure.

Has anyone heard for F-Secure causing this problem or am I paranoid and it something else the only two things we have in common are WinXP Home and Wanadoo/Orange BBand with SpeedTouch & F-Seucre 2007 Internet Security OEM.

You can disable it to try it

when I disable it should I put on the Windows Firewall straight away ?

this wouldn't proove anything as the programme is still acutally installed, another new installation was Adobe Reader v8 which went on at the same time so now that 2 ideas.

If I was you, Remove Acrobat, Install this it's much better and faster. Plus takes up a fraction of the disc space thar Acrobat uses. Foxit Reader click here download button in the Whats New box

Have you known Adobe Acrobat Reader v8 to cause this.

Just been looking at click here and it says its a known issue in XP and a patch was released in SP1a thing is all patches are bang upto date click here

so I am none the wiser.

No it's just that I found Foxit, as I was having Probs with Acrobat and did a search for a PDF reader in google

will try it but I now have to see if it will cure my problem. I just asumed Adobe v8 Rdr was the cause but not 100% convinced yet.
