[SOLVED] Windows v. slow after shutting down during system updates

Question: [SOLVED] Windows v. slow after shutting down during system updates

I very stupidly shut down my computer during the "system updates... do not power off or unplug" and now Windows 7 is exceptionally slow to log in or do anything at all.

I system restored it to a point a week before the shutdown incident and I also then installed all the missing updates but it is only marginally better. It still takes about 30 - 60 minutes to log in.

Any ideas on what is wrong would be greatly appreciated thank you! :)

Preferred Solution: [SOLVED] Windows v. slow after shutting down during system updates

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: [SOLVED] Windows v. slow after shutting down during system updates

Hi ariana44,

Is it the same when you boot in to Safe Mode? Tap F8 whilst the computer is first starting up and then choose Safe Mode when prompted. Report back whether this improves it or not.

Was it Service Pack 1 that you were installing? You could also try uninstalling it, then rebooting and then try re-installing it.

I recently installed some files recommended by windows update. The problem is, they have now slowed my computer down emensely! I was wondering if there was any "record" or "undo" I can use without using system recovery, because I have installed programs since, I cannot install again as it would take valuable time.

I've noticed under "Processes" tabs that I have alot less processes runnning, the only "services" I can think of that are running are

1-explorer
1-taskmgr
1-minlogon
1-crss

Isn't there supposed to be svchost or something like that and lsass??

Thanks,

Shawn

When I reboot my PC it takes a good 3 minutes to get from the "Welcome" screen to being ready to work with only 4 items on System Tray, volume, Sunbelt Vipre, Zone Alarm Firewall, and Win Patrol.

Hi Guys,

Yes... I have found that my P4 1.7GHz Computer is since of late having Problems. The System is installed with Windows Xp SP2 and was running normally. Infact, when at the time of starting the Computer, there is no problem at all. It takes around 2 mts, which is very good. Also I should reiterate that the Computer is not slow for working on it, whilst the Computer is turned On. But, the moment that you off the Computer, then it takes around 4 1/2 minutes to shutdown which is extremely slow.

Overall, starting up and working on the Computer is very good as there is no sluggishness of the System. You could move fast as and when needed. But could someone enlighten me .... why is this slowness occouring at the time of shutting down only.

What could be the reason for this behaviour that is slowing the Computer in shutting down. ???

Thanks in Advance

Best Regards
 

Answer:Solved: Shutting Down Slow ????

You may have something running that needs to complete its function before it'll allow your computer to shut down.

Go here and click the green icon to download and save HijackThis 2.0.2. Close all open windows first, then install it in its default location. Run a scan with it - which should take 30 seconds or less. Save the resulting log in Notepad. Return here, then copy-and-paste the entire log here.

Hey everyone. Every time I restart my computer my Windows Update's Automatic Update setting keeps changing and shutting off. I then have to turn Automatic Updates back on. I do this in Standard Mode instead of Administrative Mode since I almost never log in to my administrator account. It does ask my administrator account's permission before changing the settings though and I put in my administrator password. So anyway, I'd really appreciate some help.

I just let Windows install todays updates. Everything except Skype (this included an NVidia driver). When the computer started up after the Windows update (with the "don't shut off computer completing updates. etc.) message, the computer shut off. First I thought it was part of the update (and machine would restart) but it was not. Something broke.

I restarted and as soon as hit windows start screen it shut off again. I restarted again and got the "Windows Did Not Start - repair message". I said "run startup repair". Windows shut off during that process. I restarted again, and was able to run the repair process. But once it finished and booted into Windows it shut off again. I was finally able to start Windows so went to command prompt and started to run SFC /Scannow. It shut off during this test.

lastly I thought maybe its an overheat issue. I booted into Windows Safe mode and started the program HWMonitor. It showed my CPU temps at 39 degrees C. Then it shut off again. At this rate I'm going to wear out the on/off button.

Any ideas?

Answer:After todays (7/19) Windows updates my computer keeps shutting off

Try a System Restore yet? Do it in Safe Mode (or repair disk/install DVD), hopefully no restarts to interfere the restore. Then install updates one by one (restart after each and wait a bit to make sure it is alright), Nvidia as last.

You can also try just downgrading GPU drivers first, and restore if it does restart like that.

I apologize in advance for my lack of tech knowledge.  I will try to explain my situation as thoroughly as possible.
 
I am running Windows 7 Home premium 64 bit.  A month ago i had a hard drive failure and had a new 4tb hard drive installed. My motherboard does not support UEFI and because of that the boot sector was moved to a thumb drive and pointed at the Windows installation on the 4tb. I don't think that has anything to do with the problem I'm having now but since it was a recent change, I'm mentioning it.
 
4 days ago my son was using DVD Shrink (an old and sometimes glitchy program) and it locked up. He opened task manager and attempted to force close the program.  It would not close.  After waiting several minutes he manually turned off the computer.
 
When I restarted the computer it said Preparing to configure Windows.  Do not turn off your computer.  I thought it was installing updates and i walked away from it.  When I came back it said:
Failure configuring Windows updates.  Reverting changes.  Do not turn off your computer.  It hung on this screen for more than 4 hours. 
 
At that time I turned it off with the button and booted into safe mode.  I tried to do a system restore but it says I have no restore points.  Apparently system restore was turned off when the new hard drive was installed.  When I couldn't restore I made a disc image backup of the hard drive and tried aga...

Dear readers and supporters, I'm using a new P51s thinkpad since two weeks, and while i'm generally rather happy with it, what still really bugs me is the somewhat slow / choppy performance of screen animations ...I'm experiencing this over all applications, be it firefox, chrome, vivaldi, word 2016, adobe indesign 2017, and so on, even windows itself is affected (like in the start menu or whe n.  In browsers, it's scrolling and html animations, in other applications it's mainly scrolling, panning, etc. that's just not as smooth as i'd expect it (as as i was accustomed on my old Thinkpad T520). This means that animations and scrolling are feeling choppy, i'd say somewhere between 15 and 30 fps instead of the expected 60fps. When scrolling, it sometimes "skips" a step.  Generally, it just does not look smooth, and more important it does not feel really responding to my input.This may be unrelated or not, but I also have the impression that sometimes left clicks are not registred, sometimes i have to press a second or third time. This is especially true for the trackpoint keys. Hints:- I'm having the hiDPI screen, running at 200% scaling (Windows setting). I tried different scalings with no success.- I have not changed anything about Optimus, so most applications are running with Intel Graphics, except where set otherwise preconfigured.  I tried to change to Nvidia/Quadro for testing purposes, but nothing changed there, and i reset to defaults.- I ...

Answer:P51s with hiDPI-screen - slow animations / slow screen updates /skipping frames system wide?

An update:? i changed my resolution to 1920x1080px and 100% scaling: everything is smooth.? then i changed to 3840x2160px and 100% scaling: choppy.? then i changed back to 3840x106px and 20=% scaling: choppy (this is what i had described above)so it seems to be a problem with drivers, windows or generally the high workload for 3840-rendering. I'd expect it to be less of an impact though, especially when having the nvidia chip doing the work, but it's no change when forcing it to do so via optimus settings.

I have recently been experiencing a huge decline in my system's performance, which has progressively gotten worse over the past week, resulting in 2 BSOD's whilst gaming.
I tend to find that my computer struggles to complete simple tasks within an acceptable time, such as opening My Computer, it often (at its worse moments) barely opens, and when it does the interface loads very slowly and the searching flash light appears. However, this doesn't seem to be the case all of the time, where I find that the PC can run perfectly stable at times.
I am also beginning to notice severe FPS spikes in some of my games, whilst the game generally runs perfectly normal there are spots every so often where the game chokes and freezes up - this is where i have met my first 2 BSOD's.

I have ran the Windows 7 memory test with a pass and the Seagate hard drive tests on Long with a pass.

I have included the appropriate attachments (dxdiag included).

Thanks,
J.

Basic story:

Averatec 3200 series laptop worked fine until a couple of weeks ago; particularly:

1) Booted windows XP quickly (less than 30 sec.)

2) Could accept DV video signals through a firewire plug in and capture to HD
with no trouble.

The proverbial *something* happened about two weeks ago. All of a sudden:

1) Windows XP takes multiple minutes to load.

2) DV Video signals now show up choppy and skippy when captured to HD

I tried defragging the drive; took forever and didn't change anything.

HJT log below; would appreciate any help. Thanks!

Answer:Solved: Windows XP System Slow (all of a sudden)

Open the Device Manager (winkey+pause/break > Hardware > Device Manager)

Expand the entry for IDE ATA/ATAPI.

Select the Primary IDE and confirm whether it says the "Current Transfer Mode" is ULTRA DMA or PIO (not "available", but actually current).

If it says PIO, select the Driver tab and uninstall the driver and reboot. Check to see that it has been reconfigured to ULTRA DMA.

If the problem returns after a few reboots or days -- further issues need to be addressed to resolve the cause.

New here...I have a 3 year old Acer Laptop, Aspire 3000 (with only 20 gigs) and have replaced it. I ran out of memory in it, so I am attempting to set it back to its original setup using the System CD and the Recovery discs (3) of them.
I did as instructed, and reset the system to boot from the CD ROM and it went through the process and got through disc 1, but after inserting disc two, it simply shuts down and tries to reboot, but can't of course because it hasn't finished the process...any help here?

Went to MS Dowload center and downloaded and installed 87updates to include IE8, started computer, all OK. Then updater said needed to download SVC Pack 3- took a loooooooooooooong time. THEN COMPUTER WOULDNT START- tried the two options it gave me but no go back to same black screen with boot options-- regualar- last working point- safe mode etc. no go.
At this point I did a full System Recovery again and downloaded virus protection again. I noticed some of the updates are for IE6 and later your install IE8 and it seems one of the updates was for Sc Pack 3. Wondering about these updates now, dont want to go back and have to do this all over again. I have all my important files on a seperate portable backup drive. Any advice would be appreciated.

Hello.

I am working on a clients computer, an HP Dv5000. According to him, the hard drive has been replaced and a new windows xp install has been done. I recently eliminated a virus on it (about 2 months ago), and it was running fine up until now.

The system seems to work correctly, except it runs extremely slowly (5 minute or longer boot time both safe and normal), downloads from the internet either take decades or dont work at all, and programs like Norton are having trouble initializing. I checked it for Viruses, none, I did a disk check with a few errors found, and a defrag. It seems to run fine on my pc through a usb ata adapter, although it may be a tad slow. When installed in the clients pc, it boots and all, but runs so slowly, and when there is HDD activity shown by the light, you can hear the drive but very intermittenly and not in line with what the light shows.

I ran seatools on it on my pc through the USB adapter, and it passed all tests. On the clients pc, I did the same, and it passed all tests, like the SMART test and the short generic test, but the Long generic test ran over night and never finished, with a pop up saying it is taking a long time. So that test essentially failed. I ran Prime95 on it for like 2 hours and it seemed to handle that fine.

I am at a complete loss- there seems to be no problem other than a possible bad drive, what do you guys think? Would a system report help out at all?

Thanks,
Will

Windows acting slow can be anything from hard drive going bad to a virus or some other program hoarding system resources

Can you check the system resource utilization under task manager and see which process if any is going out of control

Hi there

Maybe not a proper comparison but using a bootable Linux HOST on a USB3 connection via SATA==>USB3 SSD device and starting a Windows 10 VM (X-64) loads very much faster than a HOST Windows 7 Native machine using standard HDD's.

Boot time for the Linux system is not significant. Booting up the Windows 10 VM merely takes a few seconds and it's ready for use --makes a great PORTABLE system too as the VM image will work seamlessly on most hardware without change or activation required.

If you don't have an SSD at least for the OS you should invest in one now --they are quite cheap these days and you will really appreciate the performance even on older systems (perhaps ESPECIALLY on Older systems).

Cheers

I got the computer to start up and tried to do a couple system restores. I then noticed then that the date/time on the computer was off. Saying some of the restore points were back in 2006, when I didn't even have this computer. After a couple failed attempts, I got the computer to restore. Its not randomly shutting off anymore but is still slower than it should be. I reseted the date and time, but I'm still worried something could be wrong.

Hi everyone,

I hope you can help me. I've had a variety of problems on my Win XP computer.

Shut down - Ending AXWIN FRAME Window
Ending explorer.exe
Ending Adobe Acrobat

My computer seems to be very slow in accessing programs sometimes as well. Everything has gotten worse in the last few days. (never saw the first two shut down messages until today.

I've searched all the threads and can't seem to find anything that addresses all these problems at once.

I downloaded HijackThis as others were instructed to do, and here's the logfile (after my signature).

Thanks for any help you can give. BTW, the computer is about 4 1/2 years old.

Answer:Problems with Windows shutting down and slow access to programs

Looks like you may have some spyware on your machine. Let an expert look at the HJT log.

I did notice that it appears that you are running the built-in UPS monitoring for XP, as well as PowerChute. Try disabling one of them, and see if that helps with the shutting down issue.

Hi,
I have an issue with my Windows 7 x64 Pro installation.
After I installed the HP LaserJet Professional CM1415fn drivers the pc became very slow at restarting or shutting down. The problem is printer related because I found a temporary workaround by stopping the spooler service and then the restart-shut down speed is normal again.
The printer is connected by ethernet and maybe this is the problem? I haven't tried with USB connection but I prefer not because it will mess up the printer devices.
If there is another permanent solution please tell me.
Thanks

Here's one for ya's.

Scenario - three PC's all running XP (2 x home, 1 x Pro), Office 2003 (sp3), IE7, Defender, CA Anti-Virus and other misc. apps.

1st PC - Athlon 64 X2 6000+, M2N-MX SE, 2GB DDR800, 8600GT 1GB, XP Pro SP3
2nd PC - DELL P4 1.8GHz, 768MB, IGP, XP Home SP2
3rd PC - Toshiba Satellite A60, Mobile P4 3.0Ghz, 640MB RAM, ATI Mobility 9600, XP Home SP2

All three, which incidently weren't used at all for 3 weeks, have developed exactly the same problem, as follows:

As previously stated, none of the three were used at all for three weeks. Upon starting they did the usual hunt for Microsoft Updates. This is where it all went pear shaped. All three PC's have decided that when updates are available (or being checked for) they aren't going to play anymore - all three systems pretty well hang. Apps will eventually open but only after a few minutes or so.

Process list indicates that one instance of svchost running at 50% with memory usage slowly but surely climbing. System Idle likewise running at 50% (available resources I understand). Kill the offending svchost process and all good except that it seems to reinstate itself whenever any network connections are made (local, internet, updates, whatever).

Now, please don't mention Viruses, spyware, malware etc. - IT IS NOT ANY OF THESE - GUARANTEED!!! I have deleted ALL locally residing files and references relating to updates - no change. Have tried removing SP3 - no change, have used system restore... Read more

Answer:[SOLVED] svchost + MS updates = REALLY SLOW PC

Hello pvtech,

Blaming Microsoft is, to my mind., not the reason for your computers acting up.

You must understand that the Windows Update site is no different to any other website in the net.
The only difference is that your machine/s have given it permission to interact with them without any intervention from you.
Enough of the rant...on to the solution...


Quote:




Kill the offending svchost process and all good except that it seems to reinstate itself whenever any network connections are made (local, internet, updates, whatever).





Herein lies the basis of your issue.....Your LAN seems to have gone awry.
The fact that you say that none of them were used for 3 weeks leads me to the conclusion that perhaps something has been dislodged and perhaps not replaced properly.
I would suggest that you 'go back to basics' and have a good look at what might be 'different' since these machines were last used, and pay particular attention to your networking.

Post back with the results.

Kind Regards,

Hey everyone,

I currently own a Dell Vostro 1500 laptop, It came with Windows Vista Business Edition 32 bits and 1 GB RAM. I recently upgraded my RAM to 4gb and decided to move to Windows 7 RC build 7100 64 bits (Had to do a clean install) . I've been getting several BSODs or the screen would just turn black and the system would stop responding.

The most common errors that I'm getting is:

The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly. -- I get this daily, if not every few hours.

my system does not shut down.....

i posted my problem earlier also but recieved no answer...
my system hangs at a point "windows is shutting down"
when i turn off my system ....what to do...
plz help me

Answer:system hangs at "windows is shutting down

First, figure out if it is a software issue and start here: Inside of Windows, Click Start>Run, and type MSCONFIG. Click on the 'Startup' tab and remove the check marks out of everything here. Click ok and this will require you to reboot. When back into Windows, try again to shut down. If it shuts down ok, then something in that list is causing the hang. You can go back to MSCONFIG, and put the check marks back in, 1 by 1, and see which causes the problem. BTW - as a general rule, it is not a good idea to have a ton of stuff checked in the STARTUP tab, simply because these are programs that are starting up with Windows that are non-essential for Windows and are using your resources.

I have shut down the system while it was updating the system (Microsoft update). Now it hangs, telling that update nr 11 of 13 is busy

what should I do?

The os is windows 8.1

Answer:Windows update hangs the system after shutting it down

The system should be able to start an automatic repair.

First of all you should perform a complete shut down of Win 8.1 as described in this document:
http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/kb0/TSB2B03EY0002R01.htm

After that you should reboot the notebook…. Usually the system would start a self-repair procedure which should fix the update issue.

them, and when I try to install, the infamous "searching for updates on this computer" pops up and does nothing. I can't even cancel it. I have to right-click on the program line at the bottom of the screen and exit it that way.

Hello,
I have several questions and I think they all probably have to do with virus or spy ware, so I thought I would start here. Operating system is Windows XP

1.When I start my computer it is taking about 2 1/2 to 3 minutes to get to the log on screen. Then,the System 32 folder opens up and is just open on the desktop. This has never happened before.

2.When I go to the Internet in IE I generally can't access items on the page. Example. If I open my bank website, it won't let me go to anything else on the page. It acts like it's doing something, takes forever and then goes back to the page I was on. I don't have the problem if I access the Internet through AOL.

3.When I access Google,a help page,my bank site, even your site, either in IE or AOL all of the print on the page is in a large font and if I print anything it is in this large font. Does my computer know I turned a year older? What gives with this?

Things I've done.
I've run my virus scan and supposedly it's up to date according to McAfee.
I've run my SpyBot and my AOL Spyware. Spybot found MyWebSearch and supposedly deleted it.

Hi there

I tried to run a backup and create a system repair disc on a very old laptop with OS Windows XP SP2.
I followed the steps on how to supposedly get to the backup wizard:

- start
- all programs
- accessories
- system tools


but there is no 'backup'.

The only choices I get are: character map, disk cleanup, disk defragmenter, files and settings transfer wizard, internet explorer, scheduled tasks, security center, system information and system restore.

Also, there is no wizard to create a system repair disc with - not even in a sub in 'system restore'.

I do not have a windows XP disc, as we purchased that second-hand laptop as a backup laptop, in case both our laptops were temporarily out of order.

to add one more problem with that laptop:
it cannot be switched off the 'normal' way (start, shut down) - only by pressing and holding the on/off button.

thank you in advance for your assistance!!!

Answer:how to run backup AND create system repair disc on windows xp sp2 and shutting down

What is the make and model # of your laptop? Only certain manufacturers and certian models allow you to create a restore disc in their programs. Like HP or Sony.
What version of Windows XP do you have? Windows XP Home or Professional, or Media Center Edition? Microsoft Backup is only included in XP Pro not Home. There are many other Backup programs like: EaseUS Todo Backup Free - CNET Download.com
Newer laptops come with a Recovery Partitions that you would access to restore Windows. Many Computer Manufacturers allow you to order a Recovery CD from their web site. Worse case scenario is you can get one on Ebay or Craigslist.

Hi all,

Working on an older Dell laptop for a friend (1.8ghz single-core, 1.5GB RAM) and cannot seem to get Windows Update to work...it will take hours to "check for updates" and then find some. I select the ones I want, install them, it claims they are "successful" and that the computer requires a restart. I restart to find they fail as the computer is restarting and that they continue failing as the computer comes back up after reboot.

I then check for updates again and get the same issue. It seems to install one or two updates each time, but the rest seem to fail (I know this as the owner has dial-up [I know, right? 0_o] and upon this last failure cycle, I now see the Win10 "reserve your copy" panel under Windows Update which was never there before.)

I've tried a few things in a few other threads including installing the December Windows Update update patch manually and I am still getting this issue...

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

Dear TSG

I was running windows 8.1 back in January and it crashed during an update. After that, the system wouldn't start and just kept on going round in circles trying to fix itself. (See thread 'Solved: Can't fix windows 8.1, PC locked. Last post 28-2-2014.)

Under diagnostic tests at a local PC repair shop, a hard drive failure seemed to be the problem. Since it was under warranty, it went back to PC World who sent it back to Lenovo. I got it back in March but all they did was a system reset, putting it back on windows 8.

Everything is now working fine apart from one fact. It won't update. I just get the 'failure configuring updates, reverting changes' message. My metro tiles stopped working yesterday as well. I presume this is also an update issue. Under investigation it appears updates have never been installed. I came across a message saying the place where windows stores updates has been moved. How do I repair this, since the windows update troubleshooter doesn't help? I am fairly conversant in DOS, but it's been a while.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm using a Lenovo Ideacentre B340 running windows 8 with the following spec:

Intel Pentium CPU G645 @ 2.90GHz
DDR3 SDRAM
Lenovo Mahobay motherboard
440GB Hard Drive

I have enabled safemode startup on the F8 key and everything of importance is backed up.

Best Regards

Dave

to answer your question about update, you can delete the uninstallation files of those updates!
-just open my computer
-click tools--folders options
-in the display tab, enable show hidden files an folders and aply changes
-now go to my computer/local drive(usally c/windows and delete all $NTUninstalKB.....(writen in blue)
this should free you about 150mb space.
If you need more space you will probably have to delete some of your old program you dont use anymore(from the control panel)
and about your mouse! you should try replacing it

Answer:Solved: Updates Appear at Shutdown Prompt, but not in System Tray?

I do not think that link is related to your problem
It is dated 2009 and referred to a known fault that I am sure has been fixed

As far as I know, when the warning appears on Xp at shutdown, it is related to updates that cannot be installed, until the shutdown and install updates is clicked.
They have already been downloaded but are then installed with the warning appearing
DO NOT turn off your computer it will do so automatically.
If the updates also require a restart then that occurs automatically and each screen shows you
updates are being completed 1 of x etc.

I think you should check how you have updates configured
1. Download and install automatically
2. Download I will choose when and which to install
3. Notify only

as explained here
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306525

I also think you should check how update notification in the taskbar notification area is configured as per my screenshot

Over a year ago someone on this forum asked a question, "My security center automatic updates is not on and it won't allow me to turn it on."

I recently did a system recovery on an older HP. I then updated to XP Service Pack 3 and now I have the same problem. I've turned automatic updates on every way I can think of: 1. update when the computer starts, 2. update at a specific time of the day, and 3. inform me whenever updates are available. Still automatic updates are turned off in the Security Center.

My general request is for any help you can offer.

My more specific question is that someone replied to the question I quoted above with the following:

1. Click Start, click Run, type REGSVR32 WUAPI.DLL, and then press ENTER.

2. When you receive the "DllRegisterServer in WUAPI.DLL succeeded" message, click OK.

3. Type the following commands in the Open box, one after the other, and then press ENTER after each command:

REGSVR32 WUAUENG.DLL
REGSVR32 WUAUENG1.DLL
REGSVR32 ATL.DLL
REGSVR32 WUCLTUI.DLL
REGSVR32 WUPS.DLL
REGSVR32 WUPS2.DLL
REGSVR32 WUWEB.DLL

When I tried this I got as far as Step 2 but then the box didn't open in Step 3.

I appreciate any help you have. My system info is below:

I'm not using Automatic Updates, but instead manually going to Windows Update once a week or so. So I've got Automatic Updates turned off.

However, now that I've done this, I always have this red shield with an x in it in my system tray (where you'd usually get the yellow shield with updates turned on when there are updates available). It also gives me a warning that they're turned off every time I start up my computer.

How can I get rid of this? Do you have to have Automatic Updates turned on to get rid of it?

Thanks for the help!

SOLVED!
Click start, control panel, security centre, change the way security centre alerts me, untick automatic updates, confirm

I'm running XP with SP2 Version 2002, because SP3 update caused my system to crash, so had to re-built from old startup disk.

All was working good except now when I select power down, or restart it will stop and stay for ever on the window "windows is shutting down"

I have to hold down the Power Button to shut down. It powers up ok and all runs good.
I use wireless internet, norton and Spyware, skype, and multi-purpose printer Canon. I have a backup seagate USB hard drive that I keep my important files backed up on.

I will later go to windows 7, once I figure out the best way to do that.

The Windows XP Home SP2 on this system is not shutting down completely. It gets stuck on the "Windows is shutting down..." page and has to be turned off by holding down the power button for at least 8 seconds every time, which is a royal pain in the you-know-what!
I have updated and re-configured Windows all of the McAfee components and I am in the process of taking ALL of the usual discovery and removal steps for possible malware &/or system infection, but I thought I would post this question to see if maybe this behavior is coming from something else that someone may know of.
Anyone have any ideas? Also, is there anyone who may be able to help me with the results of all of my scans? If so, please let me know and I will post the logfiles and results immediately. Thanx in advance!

I have Windows XP Home Edition installed on a Dell Dimension 8300, and the OS works fine except for the shutdown. It hibernates and goes into standby at normal speeds, but a shutdown is very slow. It goes through "Logging off" and "Saving your settings" at normal speeds, but it displays "Windows is shutting down" for 90 seconds (I timed it). Booting up goes at a normal speed, but it doesn't load my notification area icons until I end and restart the "explorer.exe" process. I have run Ad-Adware, Spybot, and my anti-virus suite scanners, and fixed any issues that they found, but it still shuts down slow.

Answer:Windows XP Windows is shutting down slow...

IE is always empty - I've long since forgotten the reason.Right now you need to look for any errors that relate to shutting down - their times will help. They might give a clue about what things are hanging up.As for the general bulk then it's a case of slowly wading through them sometime, concentrating on the most recent ones. Not all errors and events are serious and they can come and go.Check out that second link I gave you - it has a lot of useful info.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Hi Guys,

Been a while since I have posted, thanks for your help in the past.

I have 5 problems at the moment:

- Computer is slow to startup.

- Windows defender keeps finding the same 2 problems: Adware: Win32/Cpmsky & Browser Modifier: Win32/Fotomoto - says it removes them but they come straight back.

- CA Antivirus has been detecting and removing 44 threats for the last 6 weeks or so.

- When I shut down my computer it invariably downloads and installs updates - I have checked this out and it is always the same update (which is always installed properly).

- Spybot S&D also acting up a bit by not immunizing my computer properly - ie: after clicking on Immunize it tells you how many items that you are not protected from, ie: 198, after updating I am still only protected against 74670 whilst the total reads 74861. A discrepancy of 191?

I'm having an odd problem with my Dell Inspiron 1150 laptop w/XP pro SP3, it runs extremely slow, time lapse photography slow. When it's acted up the indicator light with the cylinder next to in will light up constantly. Not sure the exact meaning of this light; hard drive, or CPU processing. When operating normally it lights up only when the computer is "doing something" for lack of a more technically accurate term. On to the issue.

This computer hasn't been used in about six months, the power connector was broken. I recently fixed the power connector and all was well again. Upon start up I did windows XP updates (SP3 and others), after which I installed Spybot S&D, as I had no anti-spyware, and uninstalled Avast free ant-virus 4.?, and reinstalled Avast free anti-virus 5.0, both these programs seem to be operating normally, and playing nicely together, I only mention it in the interest of being complete. After a few weeks of normal and relatively fast operation, windows automatic updates said there were more updates ready for my computer, they were subsequently downloaded and installed. After the required restart the system seemed to take a long time do something (indicator light on) but after a while it seemed to finish and act normal, working fine for about an hour or so, then the trouble started light back on constantly and absolutely everything operating painfully slow. I then shut down and restarted, same result. So I used system restore ... Read more

Hello Forum,
For some months I am trying to make some updates to the system. First I let MS to check what updates the system is missing (mainly security), it was a whole day up to midnight, then I got the list of updates needed.
Next I selected 3 or 4 and clicked the install button, it was almost 6 hours until those 4 were installed, restarted etc. I have quit fast Internet connection, other files from other places are downloaded fast enough.
So I started to download all the updates into a folder on the computer, when all was done, I pointed on a file and right-clicked to install it - the update window opened and got "starting to download..." and I lost my patience, tried another and another, always the same.
I ran a system check, a disk check, any malware and virus check, nothing was found and no errors reported.
I do want to update my system, right now 2 are being "download", almost 3 hours passed and still not downloaded.
Some help will be appreciated.
Thanks

I just recently finished a build and have been working on getting Win7 up and running on it. After installing the OS everything seems to be working fine. Then, after installing updates and or mobo drivers, I can't get past the "starting windows" page with the glowing window. This is my third time reinstalling the OS. I've tried various orders of driver/update installation. For instance: installing the mobo drivers before Win7 updates and vice versa.

Then, after doing any of those, I restart the machine sometimes it hangs and sometimes it will boot fully. But inevitably, when it's time to reboot again to complete driver/update installation it will hang again. Then when I follow the steps to repair the OS, it fails and then I'm sent into a loop of that.

Note: I thought that maybe there was an issue with the RAM/GPU but I did a ramcheck that didn't come up with any errors and I have removed my discrete card for now. Also, I had tweeked a couple things in the BIOS (fan settings, and changing SATA to ACHI) but I set everything back to default and it hasn't seemed to help either.

My system is:

Biostar TZ77XE3
i5-3450
Samsung 120 GB SSD

Any help would be excellent, as I'm getting tired of trying to just reinstall.

Thanks!!

Greetings,

I built my comp (with the help of several fine people on this forum) in July. Bought a new copy of Win7-64bit and everything has been running great. Lately, everytime I shut down it says it needs to install updates and it goes through 23 installations. I let it do it's thing and the next day is the same thing, installing updates 1 of 23. I've watched it and it does go through all 23 (can't see any details) and then shuts down like it should.

Anyone ever hear of this occurrence and if so, any tips? Thank you very much.

ok, I looked at the updated, and most of them are for XP??? Copied the details of one of them below and of course all of the XP upates failed, now after more digging, I did install Microsoft Office XP on my system as I didn't really want to buy a new office suite, but I looking at the update list, almost all of them refer to powerpoint or office or something. I bet you that is the issue.

For some time now I've been plagued with messages regarding having to shutdown the computer to install 'important updates.' The computer says it's installing the updates and needs to shut down which takes for ever. It then reopens to say 'Updates were not configured correctly. Reverting changes' It then goes automatically to 'Switching off...installing updates.' After an age it reappears with 'The user profile service failed the logon. User profile cannot be loaded.' I then have to physically switch it off and it restarts successfully. That sequence has been ongoing for some time. I have Vista Home Premium Service Pack 2 and on a Dell Inspiron 1545 Laptop. Thanks for any assistance.

"The user profile service failed to log on" etc - I could suggest you try a "system restore" if you have an idea when the problem occurred and you can restore to a date BEFORE that. Otherwise have a look at this LINK - click here
