Windows ME shut down problem

by Blackcurrant In reply to Windows ME shut down prob ...

Do have any power saving features turned on? Disabling these services results in much faster response times from your system. When you access the OS the hard drive takes time to start up because it has been set to 'idle mode'. Have you tried waitingafter the first shutdown attempt to see if your computer is experiencing a delay before responding to the request?

Hope this helps

Try these 2 shortcuts. It works fine for Windows 98/98 SE.
1. Create shortcut with command line:
start rundll user.exe,exitwindows
2. Create shortcut with command line:
rundll32.exe shell32.dll,SHExitWindowsEx 5
Second shortcut is case sensitive.
For second shortcut read MS KB article Q234216.
Use one of these shortcuts to shutdown your computer

Good luck

Alex

One other solution that ur can try is by disabling the fast shutdown feature. This can be done by going to msconfig that can be run by typing it at start menu -> run -> type 'msconfig', than go the General tab and click the advanced button, check the box closed all program and try restart the PC. Good Luck
