When I shutdown my computer now it takes a long time to shutdown or just won't shutdown at all. It previously shutdown quickly. I have tried to do a system restore using different points, but the system restore is always unsuccessful. Wondered if anyone had any ideas on shutdown problem?

Thanks

I had a very simular problem and found it was caused by a2, it also caused runtime errors at startup. I removed the program and everything is ok again.

It's having problems closing a program, Go to Start\Run type MSCONFIG go to start tab and remove ticks then restart, you will have to put the ticks back one at a time until the problem reoccurs you will then now what the problem is.

if you use msconfig make sure you leave systray and windows explorer ticked
