Dell XPS: 300 G hard drive 4 G Ram OS: XP/SP3 Kaspersky Internet Suite 7.0- Spybot Search & Destroy- Spyblaster-Windows Defender. All windows Updates are current. Run Disk clean-up and Defrag once a month. Clear cache nightly.
When shutting down pc, I am getting "windows is shutting down", & savings your settings... Screen goes to black normally, then a second later, starts the shut down over again. The second time the pc shuts down as normal. I am assuming 'something' isn't closing as it should, but beyond assuming (you know what they say about assuming) I have no idea what could be going on. It was suggested to check the Event Manager, but I have trouble understanding what to look for there. (definitely not a pc tech! Any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated. Thank you.
I can't pinpoint any major changes since this started... most recent changes (over a month ago) Include Service Pack 3 for XP, latest version of S &D installed, (note: S & D I have tea Timer resident running)and a second printer installed.
