Kill Win, a little program by BK-Soft that lets you set up an icon to run one or more programs, then shut down Windows.

Thanks

When Phawgg is not available what would be a good resource to whereas I can gather Info so that I am able to give facts..

Such as Good/Safe Programs I can run that would give me a report of some sort to where I can have available to Aid in the Troubleshooting of my PC?

Well you can look at our startup database here:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/startups

to look for programs and whether or not they should be allowed to start on your computer.

To make it defrag before you shutdown you can create a file on your desktop called defrag.bat and add this to it:

@echo off
defrag c:
shutdown -s -t 5 -c "defrag before shutdown"

Then when you run the program it will defrag it and then shutdown your compute 5 seconds later.

I have my computer do its virus scan and virus updates when i shut down my computer and i like it a lot because it dosn't take up any of my time and dosn't effect th speed when looking on other web pages when downloading. The best thing is I don't have to sign on just to download a virus update every day or week or anytime.

I would suggest using the program on XP!!! :thumbsup:
