Windows XP shutdown options dont load.

  1. For some reason, when shutting down Windows XP, I go to the start menu, click on turn of computer, and then the box with the three shutdown options either takes at least 3 minutes to load or just doesn't load at all. Any suggestions?

    Sounds like you have a process that isn't wanting to close. It COULD be malware related. If you haven't already, you should read Is your system infected? Read this before Cleaning or Formatting

    If you decide you would like to clean your system go here Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions follow the instructions exactly and post the requested logs as ATTACHMENTS
