Hi there,

I was asked to post here regarding a shut down problem that I have.

I am currently using Windows XP Home Edition 2002 with Service Pack 2.

The Problem:
Every time I shut down or restart windows, the screen will go blank, leaving only the background showing and just hangs there. I will then have to press CLTL/ALT/DELET for it to shut down properly.

Please help.

Thank you.
