Hello,

I am having a problem shutting down my computer.
I do start -> Shutdown and nothing happens.
If I am lucky a few applications will close but nothing else.
But nothing else for minutes.
Plus I am able to start programs - Where normally you get an error saying
can't start application system is shutting down.

If I do shutdown a second time things shutdown right away.

Same things for for restart.

I'm not finging anything on Google. At least nothing yet.

Any thoughts?

Bert,

The problem still exists :( but has gotten better after making some
changes after the suggestion from the websites you suggested.

Thank you and I'll keep poking around.
