Shutdown problem

Q: Shutdown problem

I get this message along the lines of " can't read memory 000000.00 or something like that right before system shuts off when I am turning it off. I don't even have time to click on the option it gives me before the system shuts down. This seems to have started when i installed ad-block, but other than the worrisome message I haven't noticed any problems.

Thanks for your help.

Preferred Solution: Shutdown problem

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Shutdown problem

If you uninstall ad-block does the error go away?

Hello,

My mother was using my computer and she keeps going to this website that downloads malware (yeah, she not going to go on this website anymore... lol) on my computer. I have dealt with this several times and now I have a few things on my computer that I cannot seem to get rid of.

I had over 32 malware on my computer and managed to get rid of those. However, I am still having the NT Authority\System shutdown problem upon using my computer from hibernation. Also, whenever I reboot, I get the helper.dll in the common folder upon startup. I may or may not have other problems also.

I really appreciate anyone who can help me.
Thanks in advance.

Hello,
i have instaled windows xp profesional sp3 on a desktop.
after that i realised that problem:
some times when i shutdown the pc and when it is in the last state in which it must shutdown,
it sticks at the last screen (save settings).
the mouse pointer sticks too, the power button doesn't work neither.

i updated all the drivers and the bios,
i changed the values in registry "CrashControl" from 1 to 0, and the "PowerDownAfterShutdown" from 0 to 1
i changed the value in registry of "WaitToKillAppTimeOut" from 20000 to 27000.

also in device managment, at the usb divice i choosed the properties, power managment and i unchecked the button: "computer can disable the divice....".

nothing of the above worked

there is not APM option in the Power options

Please help.

A:Shutdown problem

Actually you want to change twh WaitToKillAppTimeOut to 2000. Here's a list of simple things you can try. If none of these work, go to please go to my next post below:

1) Make sure "clear pagefile at shutdown" is not enabled:
start - run - regedit
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management]

Set ClearPageFileAtShutdown value to 0
2) Start - Run - Regedit
Navigate to the following Registry key:
HKEY CURRENT USER\Control Panel\Desktop
Double click on the AutoEndTasks entry and replace the 0 with a 1 in the Value data text box

For the next two, if the dword value indicated does not exist, create it:

Double click on the WaitToKillAppTimeout entry in the right pane and change the Value data to 2000

Double click on the HungAppTimeout entry in the right pane and change the Value data to 1000

Reboot

3) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control
Right-click on WaitToKillServiceTimeout and change it to 2000

A:Shutdown Problem...

[tsg=welcome][/tsg]

Hi There!

Shut down problems can be caused by a number of different things.

Here's the first thing to try...

run MSCONFIG-
Choose "Selective Startup"
UNCHECK "Load Startup Items"
APPLY and reboot.

Test the system shutdown without all the startup items loading.

If everything works fine, then go back into MSCONFIG and go to the "Startup" TAB.
place a check mark in ONE ITEM at a time and apply/Reboot.

This will give you an idea of what in startup would be causing the problem.
Good Luck!

DEP problems!!

My internet IE7 keeps stopping, citing DEP issues. As you know the DEP prevents the computer from allowing programs, which the system deems harmful, to start to protect the computer from these files.

The question is: How do I know which file(s) are trying to start that are causing the DEP to kick in? Does DEP keep a log? When IE7 is running, I have no other programs working so it must be something "behind the scene."

Thanks in advance.

A:problem with shutdown

It sounds like you've got the laptop's power-off button configured for "Hibernate" instead of for "Shutdown". If you continue to keep the button pressed down to force it to shutdown suddenly, you will cause errors in the Windows filing system which may eventually prevent Windows from starting.

Go to Control Panel > Power Options.
In the left pane, click "Choose what the power buttons do"
Where it says "When I press the power button.." click the down-arrow and select "Shut down"

Now click "Save Changes".

Now all you need to do is give the power button a quick push and Windows should shut down properly.

About a week ago the computer started rebooting automatically after a normal shutdown. Only way out is to power off.

Any ideas anyone?

That is typically a bios setting. Have you updated your bios recently (that you are aware of)?

When I go to turn off my computer or restart it, it tries to end task for the iexplore.exe. It will say the program is not responding and the computer won't turn off or restart like I asked it to.

Also, when I open up my task manager and look in processes I see that iexplorer.exe is still running when I don't have any IE windows open at all. And the strange thing is I can't end task it and there's multiples of them. As well, if I don't have iexplore.exe in the process it has a problem with ending sysfader.

Hello everyone,

Each time I want to shut down my pc using the regular way (shutdown menu), the application stop, the screen gets black, but the cpu remains under power. To shut it down I have to do it manually using the on/off button. After that, after putting it on again, a scandisk starts automatically and finds nothing. All these operations are time consuming. I suspect that there is sth (virus?) hidden constantly present and working on my pc. Btw, Norton doesn't detect anything wrong. I ran the spybot fix, but this has not changed anything. Anyone has an idea please? Many thanks in advance.

Elisabeth

The two most common culprits for hanging on shutdown are anti-virus programs and drivers. Since you have Norton AV installed and it's the worst offender, try shutting it down before you shut down the computer. If that solves the problem, look around on the Symantec web site to see if they offer any solutions. I don't use Norton so I can't be more specific than that, sorry.

If it's not the AV program, look in Device Manager to see if anything has a yellow warning sign (Control Panel>System>Hardware Tab>Device Manager button) If so, try reinstalling the drivers for that device.

Took my PC to service shop and they started the diagnostics test, but because I needed to use it over the weekend I picked it up before the test was finished. I will take it back again.

Interestingly though once I got home and got it booted up I set it to never shut off, and now it seems fine. The folks at the shop thought my problem might be a bad hard drive, but of course that is to be determined. My question is, IF it's my hard drive why does it work now when I leave it on? If it were bad wouldn't it quit on me?

If I shut it off I still have problems starting it...have to keep hitting start button until it books and I can click on "start Windows normally".

What do you mean by "hitting start button"??

click on "start Windows normally". => You mean you see the "advanced boot options" with "safe mode", "safe mode networking" and so on? Normally this only happens after bad shutdown (crash). Did system crash, did you power off manually because shutdown freezes? Or does it crash and reboot on shutdown?

I have a problem when shutting down the computer. About 4 out of 5 times when I select shutdown, the computer hangs on the blue screen and I must force it to shut down by holding the startup button. Then on the next startup, about half the time, the system goes through a check.
I am using XP2. I was told by Circuit City that this could be caused by spyware. I brought it to them for a fix, among other problesm I have Spy Sweeper installed but even after a scan and the $100 they charged me, the problem persists. The recommended a clean install of XP2 but I am trying to avoid that route. One thing I do notice is that I have a constant correction on the startup scan with many files in a Temp folder of Spy Sweeper that are invalid. The system corrects itself, but then it happens again. Just to note, this shutdown problem was occuring before Spy Sweeper was installed, so I am thinking that it is not the cause.

Any suggestions on what I should do to correct this problem?

Thanks
