Win 95 Log off Freeze

By grinstb ·
We are running an Nt 4.0 server with W95 clients and are having a problem with the shutdown option close allprograms and log on as a new user. When this field is selected the computer starts the log off process and then freezes and you are forced to do a hard reboot.

Any thoughts on the cause would be appreciated.

Win 95 Log off Freeze

I have had this problem when attempting to perform the function multiple times. It is better to close as many apps. as possible on your own. Anti-virus apps. can give you a hard time as well. If your running MSOffice shortcut bar, it can be a pain. W98 handles your problem cleaner.

Log as admin it could be the user have something running in the back that you are not seeing.

I've had many instances of this same problem and have had about 95% success with removing all the .tmp, ._mp, ~*.* files from the Windows Temp directory and then running a simple ScanDisk and Defrag. For some reason, Windows gets hung up looking for those cross-linked (~*.*) files and sees the .tmp's as being open. Another idea we've had is to write the following into the AUTOEXEC.BAT:

set temp=c:\windows\temp
@if exist c:\windows\temp\~*.* del
c:\windows\temp\~*.* (all one line)
@if exist c:\windows\temp\*.*mp del
c:\windows\temp\*.*mp (also all one line)

If ScanDisk or Defrag keeps starting over or gets hung, bring the machine back up in Safe Mode and run them again.

Good Luck!
