Windows XP Shutdown Problems

Hi:

I am running xp pro (32-bit) I have had problems with windows properly shutting down..

It just seems to hang with the "Windows is shutting down" message.

I created a shortcut to shutdown windows which includes the following parameters:

C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\KILLAPPS.EXE C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32.SHUTDOWN.EXE -r -f -t 2

I also manually closed all programs that had processes in the system tray.

Is there a program or utility that will kill all active processes, and then use the shutdown.exe parameters as above so windows xp will shutdown normally?

Much Thanks :rolleyes:

Don't know if this will help - find Microsoft's UPHCLEAN "User Profile Hive Cleanup".

Killing "shutdown" isn't too wise - that's what shuts you down. "..problems with windows shutting down"/hangs indicates that something is not being "stopped". Try the above "fix" to see if it helps at all.

No; if a program or utility kills itself after killing all active processes, it cannot then invoke the SHUTDOWN.EXE utility.
