win2000 unable to shutdown normal way

by Geek2D In reply to win2000 unable to shutdow ...

first run a defrag, Start> Programs> Accessories> System tool> Disk defragmentor
Then open your registry
Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
Value Name: PowerdownAfterShutdown
Data Type: REG_SZ (StringValue)
Value Data: (0 = reboot, 1 = power down)

Create a new string value, or modify the existing value, called PowerdownAfterShutdown and set it to "1" to power off the computer at shutdown, or "0" to reboot.

see if that helps
