Is this only when you do a restart through the Shutdown menu, or when you turn on the computer from a cold start? Check the Event logs as well for any possible errors.

Go through this list as a start to try and figure out:

- have you recently installed any new software?
- have you recently removed any software?
- do you have more than one antivirus or firewall running at the same time? If so, disable one of them.
- if you have any realtime protection for your anti-spyware app, try disabling it, then rebooting - does the error go away? If you have SpySweeper installed, try disabling the shields, one at a time, to find the culprit.
- have you gone to Windows Update to get all the required patches?
- have you recently updated any drivers or added new hardware (like a printer or camera)?

When did this error begin to occur? Try and find an error message or code and post it in this thread. You may also want to try Safe Mode with step by step confirmation.

Good luck. :thumbsup:

Only when shutdown does error occur... i got avg anti virus still installed avg spyware... spybot S&D... and ad aware... and I have always had zonealarm.

I play about 10k of hands of poker online per week. I got many poker sites downloaded. I went on "tilt" (huge losing streak) and deleted all the sites... was going to play live only. Then 2 days later I installed all of it back. I ran all 4 of the previously mentioned programs above because I know all these sites carry a lot of unwanted stuff when downloaded.

They are still on my computer (spybot, two avg programs, and ad aware)... I am not sure if they are running constantly... I do not believe so. How do i know if they are running? I run them only when I need them. They do not run on startup... so that would classify them as disabled correct?

Only thing running on startup is zonealarm, and my email program which allows me to access all my emails from one program.

Cannot do windows update... forgot to load the keygen when I did fresh installation. So obviously things do not match with microsoft.

Is there a better FREE spyware, virus, find all problems program all in one i can use without finding cracks for a paying one?
