Can you describe exactly what appears to be happening?

when i shut down the 1st time the screen darkens and my mcaffee anti virus icon turns black indicating that it has switched off and mio toolbox which i have running on my desk top also appears to switch off then the screen brightens again and i shut down a 2nd time and it shuts down O.K ? I looked through the data base recomended by Taff36 but i could'nt find any help there ?

Then > Start > Turn Off Computer.

A Pop-up will open Centre Screen, this gives you three options > chose Turn Off.

Is that your normal procedure first time around?

Sometimes there can be quite a time between the first "Turn Off" and the Second, as Windows puts everything to bed.

I turned off mio tool box then shut down as normal and everything works fine.
I did'nt think to turn off mio tool box before as it starts up on boot up and works in the background i assumed it would switch off on shut down. thanks for your help, martyn.

Every time i boot up the mail server has changed to 127.0.0.1 I have contacted my provider and they say that they think that my anti virus software is the cause, i am using mcafee and have been for 12 months + the problem is quite recent

Start a new thread with your last problem. It`s completely different and now that this post is resolved it won`t attract attention. Also give us a bit more info about your set up in terms of the mailserver and any other computers on the network.
