Slow WinXP shutdown
« on: March 14, 2012, 05:43:48 PM »
Hi Guys
for some reason, recently my PC has started taking a long time to shut/close down. I have gone through most of the usual 'cures' - but this time without success :(
Once I see the 'windows is shutting down' notice - a further 30 seconds goes by before it happens.
This was always about 10 seconds for years - until recently. Both my other machines (both have duplicate software) do this in about 10 seconds!
All ideas welcomed.
