The Laptop when asked to shutdown goes past saving settings normally then takes ages during 2nd stage of shutdown. Took 2 hours recently.

I had a suggestion that it could be a worm but will ask him to check with Spy-bot to confirm.

He failed to spot the SP3 upgrade and it failed because he closed down. He has since had another go and all was well. Stopped AVG during install and it is now complete. Back to normal running.
