I have a PC running XP Home SP3. When I go through the shutdown routine (Start > Shutdown > Shutdown, Restart, or Install Updates and Shutdown), the PC will proceed to act like it is shutting down (you know, logging off > windows is shutting down...). The message that says "Windows is Shutting Down" disappears and I am left with blank blue screen (not a BSOD) on which I can move the cursor arrow around and that is where it stops. The PC never actually powers down. It worked properly until I installed QuickBooks Pro 2009, but I am not convinced the two events are related. I have searched the web with no luck on finding an answer. Any suggestions?
UPDATE: It is not the Quick Books. I have unistalled and problem persisits.
In Event Viewer, I am showing error codes 1517 and 1524. After doing some research on the Net, I am thinking that this may have something to do with it. With that, I have installed the MS UPHClean in an attempt to clear any registry eys that may not be allowing the sessions to end. That doesn't seem to have helped either.
