When i shut down my vista very briefly a message appears on a black background with white writing and a red box and a blue box,after numerous attempts to read this before it disappears ive managed to see that it says "windows vista is shutting down,task manager is running do you wish to close this program first" Thats not exact but along those lines,any one else had this experience?
I get an explorer.exe message on shut down on one of my vista machines but I know that this is caused by a longer than usual shut down sound. Have you changed from the Vista default shutdown sound or procedure?
My shutdown is very quick thats why i cant be 100% about the screen message its on for a millisecond,ive had to continually reboot to try photo it or just read bits at a time Yes ive changed the default sound to a "pearl" sound scheme.ill put it back to original and post back if thats the cause, thanks
chub_tor ive changed the sound back to default and the message doesnt appear now,thanks for that would never have guessed it was that! Hope microsoft bring some sort of patch out so i can use the other sound schemes
Glad that it is sorted. I still use my "longer than normal" shut down sound. I ignore the message as it is not on for long and the system shuts down anyway. What I would really like to do is change the switch on sound but I haven't found that in the sound system on Vista.
