As much as you might think there is only one set problem with everything, there isn't.

Therefore before posting a help me thread make sure to include everything possible about the thread including an indepth description of the problem

The further you describe it the better people can help.

Also googling a problem before asking for help tends to make many of us happier.

Explain what you mean by you can't shut it down.

1. It won't shut down normally and you have to power it off.
2. You get many "Task ending" buttons and it takes forever
3. Pressing the shutdown button does nothing

etc.

When you say "won't shut down normally" describe in a paragraph of 200 characters or more what goes on when you hit the shutdown button.

Also this may help with your unzipping problem

What browser are you using to download these zip files and where are you downloading them to?

Additionally if possible include screencaps/photos of your shutdown process.

Explanation of CRC errors: http://www.softwarepatch.com/tips/cyclic-redundancy.html

When most people get these...they usually relate to the insability of the system to read/transfer data properly and, as stated, are often related to media like CDs and DVDs.

If I received such message and it related to a hard drive, I would run a manufacturer's diagnostic on that hard drive.

well i managed to fix the problem. I thought someone could help me in the simpliest form possible. But from the posts from members i am confused with what u are saying. That CRC error was by me downloading a file from i music website and extracting it from firefox. But everything is ok.

Try executing the shutdown command from the Command Line (RUN)

Goto your RUN IN START MENU button and type:

tsshutdn 0 /DELAY:0
