Every time I try to close down my computer it throws up a message "WMS Idle - Ending program please wait" after a few seconds the message changes to "End Program - WMS Idle This program is not responding..."

My o/s is Windows XP Proessional

I admit it is nothing more than annoying, but I'd still rather not have it at all.

Do you have Microsoft Office Communicator 2005 running when this occurs? This Microsoft article indicates that this error is related to Microsoft Office Communicator, and suggests that if this application isn't closed before shutting down the computer this error will occur.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Uninstalling Google Earth has not got rid of the little blighter. I realise however that the first message I get when switching off my computer is "End Program - WMS Idle Ending program please wait...." before it times out and the next message comes in to show "End Program - WMS Idle This program is not responding..."

I don't know if the fact that the first info. box is title End Program is significant?

Well...that's just telling you that XP tried to close the program down...but the program did not respond to the typical XP shutdown procedures.

I suppose that you can provide additional time for shutdown, http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?...b;en-us;Q305788

In any case, I believe those two error messages belong together...the first indicating that XP is closing down a running program (I get this with SUPERAntispyware), the second telling you that the program is not responding to shutdown procedures (I don't get this one, SAS plays the game).
