Your computer. This is the message I now get when trying to shutdown,
forcing me to actually push the power button. What did I do to cause this?
It just started with an installation of a video driver (I think).
Thanks, C'ed

Roll back the video driver, reboot, and see what happens when you try to
shut down.

Why did you update the video driver? Was it by need or did you get it
through an update from the Windows Update site. If the latter, driver
updates should not be obtained that way. Get it from the device
manufacturer's web site and only update the driver if there is a need
and the new driver will correct the problem or give the needed feature.

Try doing a driver rollback on the video driver. Right click My
Computer | Properties | Hardware | Device Manager. Expand the display
adapter section, double click the device and on the driver tab choose
update driver.

See this article for more information on the message you're getting:
"It is Now Safe to Turn Off Your Computer" error message when you try to
shut down your computer

Why do MS insist on putting these drivers on their update site? If they are
going to continue, they should put the complete fully featured versions
there for download.

1. Please include the post you are replying to within your response.
2. They shouldn't allow/add/provide any!

Lindsay;
Microsoft putting there is only the last step.
The process starts with the manufacturers submitting the driver to
Microsoft.
If the manufacturer does not submit the driver, Microsoft can not distribute
the driver.
You should ask the manufacturer your question.
