Hi,

Every so often when I close down W7,a screen appears informing me that there is/are programs running,do I want a forced shut down,or close these programs down.

The problem is,I don't get chance to select an answer before the PC reboots.

Any advice on how to make the screen appear long enough to make a choice ?.

Thanks

it may be a possibility that the screen disappear because the programs have managed to close before they are forced to do so

Try the Task Manager prior to shutting down next time, and see what is still running.

I have had it before. As the programs are shit dpown normally they are removed from the list.
