everytime i shut down or restart our computer, a msgbox that says some programs may still be running appears. it has a progressbar in it and an "End now" button. when i click "end now", another msgbox with same message appears so i clicked "end now" again and that allows it to shut down or restart the computer. but i'm so sure that i have closed all programs properly but still that msgbox appears. and by the way, if i don't click the "end now" button and just wait for the progressbar to reach it's maximum, a "not responding error" occurs :thumbsup: ! in other words, i rather click "end now" button twice. i don't know what's wrong. pls help! i have this feeling that it's because i used to just either click the "power" button in the keyboard or longpress the power button on the cpu.. but that was months ago, i have stopped doing that when i began encountering that problem :flowers:

These "not responding" problems are usually related to windows trying to end a program that was running.

I would do this:
-Start - Run - type "msconfig" - hit Enter.
-Click the Startup tab, and uncheck all unnecessary programs from starting at bootup (usually safe to uncheck EVERYTHING except antivirus and firewall programs).-
- Apply, Close, Reboot (you need to do a reboot before changes will occur).

After the reboot, try restarting again and see if you get these "not responding" messages.
