Since building my machine with a Intel P4 3GHz Prescott, 1GB Kingston PC3200 DDR matched, FX5200 Nvidia AGP & SATA HDD, DVD wtr, DVD, FDD when shutting down it hangs just after saying saving settings. It seems more or a problem if shutting down while still connected to Wanadoo/Orange Broadband using a SpeedTouch 330 USB Modem.
Have updated SpeedTouch 330 USB driver for speeds upto 8MB (usually get 4.8kbps - 5.5kbps) don't know where to look to start sorting this problem out I have read things like a damaged audio WAV file but thats fine music is ok, has or can anyone suggest how to troubleshoot a XP shutdown problem please. Rippin my hair out.
I had the same problem with a Speedtouch modem. I put it down to it being a USB connection like it was trying to keep the PC running. I bought a router connected through the ethernet plug and no problem since.
When I shut down it goes so far then returns to the desktop I go through the routine of shuttimg down again and everything goes according to plan.This has only happened off late and I have removed temp files run scans with NAV,Ad Aware,Spybot,Super Anti spyware found Trojan Media Codec and Trojan Hoster both of which it removed,even after this I had the same problem with shutting down.What is the cause please.
