  • 1. Stall at shut down...
    Sometimes when I go to shut down my computer, and I click on turn off, the computer just sits there and does nothing. (it doesn't shut down any of the programs in the taskbar, etc.) It only does this some of the time, and unfortunately, this problem appears to be random because at least I haven't seen anything I was doing that would always cause the computer to stall when shutting down. This will probably make it difficult to diagnose, but any 'idears'. Here are my running processes as I type this... WINWORD.EXE svchost.exe alg.exe EM_EXEC.EXE SmartBarXP.exe (A Windows Vista-like sidebar) adsgone.exe jusched.exe CTHELPER.EXE ccApp.exe GhostStartTrayApp.exe NAVAPSVC.EXE explorer.exe sbmthread.exe msimn.exe taskmgr.exe (task manager) SymWSC.exe MsPMSPSv.exe OUTLOOK.EXE wdfmgr.exe svchost.exe CCEVTMGR.EXE spoolsv.exe ctfmon.exe wbload.exe NOPDB.EXE svchost.exe svchost.exe svchost.exe mdm.exe svchost.exe svchost.exe lsass.exe services.exe winlogon.exe csrss.exe GHOSTS~2.EXE smss.exe CTSVCCDA.EXE RioMSC.exe nvsvc32.exe NPROTECT.EXE System* System Idle Process* Of course, I close all open applications before shutting down. Thanks.

  • 3. "Automatic updates" icon won't go away
    I installed the XP SP3 updates before the automatic updates managed to tell me it was available. The auto update icon on the task bar now permanently tells me I have updates waiting to be installed - even though I've re-installed them again using the auto updater. I have auto updater set to tell me when new updates are available but not to install them automatically. How can I : 1. get rid of the auto updater off the task bar (without changing the settings)? 2. make it know I have already updated the PC? TIA Scott

I need to stop scandisk from starting???

I selected scandisk to scan each of my partitions while I was in Explore.  
Windows says it can only do it when it restarts so I shut down and let it 
restart.  Now the scandisk starts on the last partition first and when it 
gets to the next one it crashes and restarts the computer.  The whole thing 
starts all over again and keeps rebooting.  I need to stop this loop.  I can 
get access to the hard drive files using another windows install so can 
someone tell me what file to delete to kill the scandisk request???   I am 
using Windows XP Pro on my system. There must be a way to just kill the 
scandisk request before the Windows startup.

You might try putting your computer in Safe Mode and then selecting "Last 
Known Good Configuration" and see if this will get you out of the loop that 
you are in .Go to  http://www.**--****.com/

I had to do a deep scandisk con WIN XP HOME and it asked for next time
reboot, it will do the function.

It made the controls and at the end, it wrote that everything was OK.
now I can't reboot the system, it always write the CONTROL IS DONE.

shutdown the DEEP CONTROL in SCANDISK, but the system can only boot, and
start again the HDD CONTROL.

someone can help me please?

You must schedule the task under the Task Scheduler
and use an account that has sufficient privileges to do
the job. Try this in order to find out what's going on:

@echo off
echo %date% %time:~0:5% User=%UserName% Path=%path% > c:\test.log
net stop "Some Service" 1>>c:\test.log 2>c:\test.err

Now have a look at the two log files and all will become clear!
