Windows not shutting down

    Lately, Windows will mot shut down when using Start/Shut Down on the first
    try, even after giving it a few minutes. It works on the second or third
    time.

    I'm running XP Pro SP3 on a 1.8 GHZ M/B. 1mb RAM, `60gb HD. Done all
    hardware and software upgrades, run full virus scan, used Megabytes and
    Spybot.Checked Device Driver for problems and found okay.

    Any suggestions?
    Thanks
    Rob

    Hi Rob, I came by your post. I'm afraid I don't have a clue for you. But funnily
    enough, on my computer Windows attempts to shut down all the time it is being
    booted.

    Then why post ? This isn't a bloody chatroom. You *are* clueless.

    What about this:

    Just before going to shut down, open up Task Manager (right-click taskbar,
    choose "Task Manager"). Put list into alphabetical order. Kill tasks one by
    one from the top (unless its a critical component of Windows), then see if
    it shuts down. Keep trying this over and over until you work out which
    process is stopping the shut down. Then retest by rebooting and *only*
    shutting down that process so you know you've got the one. Then try and
    remove that software or get someone to write a "Process-Killer" for you that
    you run just before shutting down. 9/10 times you can do without that
    software anyway.

    Just a suggestion...not certain this will work.

    Hi,

    But the issue I am facing is something different, I am able to logoff
    very quickly but when I click on the shutdown option it takes minimum 5-10
    mins to bring the shutdown window.

    Regards,
    Potri Raaja.M.
