Problems with WinXP Pro Sp 2 shutdown

I just reformatted my raid 0 hard drive and re-applied WinXP Pro with
all updates and security patches. Everything worked fine until I installed
Visual Studio 2003 Academic version. Now when I try to shut the OS down or
re-start it, it hangs on the "Windows is shutting down" screen and I must do
it manually via the computer button(s). On the MS site it says there is a
patch for this very problem caused by two or more applications attempting to
do something at shutdown at the same time but it says to check here for how
to get the patch!?

Hi Robert,

There is an excellent shutdown troubleshooter located on Aumha.org:

http://www.aumha.org/win5/a/shtdwnxp.htm

Also, could you specify the KB number that relates to your problem ? Hope this helps out.

Maybe you saw a reference to this!

From Microsoft readme file for UPHClean



UPHClean v1.5e readme.txt
Updated March 4, 2004 by Robin Caron

All feedback appreciated to uphclean@microsoft.com

WHAT IS UPHCLEAN
================

UPHClean is a service that once and for all gets rid of problems with user
profile not unloading.

You are having profile unload problems if you experience slow logoff (with
Saving Settings for most of the time while logging off), roaming profiles
that do not reconcile, or the registry size limit is reached.

WHY DO PROFILES NOT UNLOAD?
===========================

Many system and service processes do work on behalf of users. When the work
is done the system or service process is responsible for releasing handles
it
has to the user profile hive. If this is not done by the service as the
user
logs off the profile cannot be unloaded.

This problem in code can be caused by improper coding either in Microsoft
software or 3rd party software (e.g. printer drivers, virus scanner service,
etc). With the information provided by the system there is no way to find
out what software needs to be corrected to allow profiles to unload.

You can read more here as well as download the utility.
