Hello there.
Im having a prob turning off my computer. Since a few days ago (2-3) my computer havent wanted to shut down itself. It simply stops at the last part "Computer is shutting down", (The one after "Saving your settings" ;)). Now this didnt happen just out of the blue. I've got an error about a .dll file those few days ago, when I was at the part "Shutting down computer", which I was stupid enough not to write down what it was called :|.

So what can I do to fix this? Im guessing its the .dll file thats causing it wont shut down. What can I check on my computer, to make sure its all as it should be?? Maybe a software that can scan and check for .dll errors?...

And another thing; Can it damage my computer in any way when I shut down my comuter manually to much?

Hope someone can help, regards Me :).

I've only seen that twice. One time it was due to the Yahoo tray icon, which you can delete and Yahoo IM will still run. The other time flashing the BIOS solved it but I don't know why.

your event viewer will tell you what the problem is.

go to Start>Run and type eventvwr and click OK. Then look for errors in the system log and application log.

Report any errors you see that occurred around the time of your most recent shut down.

I'd open the task manager and figure out what process isn't stopping.
