Sorry, I'd just posted this in the wrong forum (Speakers Corner) :(

____________________________


If I go to START, then Turn of computer, I just can't Restart or Shut Down totally..

The computer seems to start killings tasks etc and my desktop disappears for a sec, but then it reappears and the restart/shutting down process is no more!

I also get some sort of "Windows has encountered and error" type message, but it really doesn't give any details at all.

Your thoughts would be most welcome.

As the tite indicates, I'm suing Windows XP Home.

I've tried a hard reset (which of course works), however any soft resets/shut downs till don't work.

Have a look here , this is a winXP shutdown/restart troubleshooter click here

First run something like Adaware to check for any nasties, if it's clear run a system file check. Go to Start / Run / Type sfc /scannow (note the space between sfc and / ) you will need your XP Disc.

I've tried both already rawprawn, you're obviously thinking the same way I am, but this just hasn't resolved it.

Could be a corrupted driver for sound or graphics.Have you tried updating or reinstalling them?
