  • Turning off PC issues!!

    Ok guys any help with this would be great. Over the past few days I've noticed that I have to click turn off computer twice before it will actually turn off. The only new thing I have done to my pc is install the new Project Reality patch & thats it. I'm running Windows XP SP2.

    Re: Turning off PC issues!!

    If "turn off computer twice" means having to do Start > Turn Off Computer > Turn Off Computer twice, then have you tried disabling your software firewall and anti-virus before shutting down?

    Sometimes some of these programs interfere with Windows.

    Is there a reason why you haven't installed SP3?

      Yes I have to go to start then shut down twice before my pc turns off. Why would my firewall & virus protection just start doing that? No real reason why I haven't installed SP3

        Might be a good idea to get SP3 installed. There might be a off-chance that SP3 corrects this issue.

        Have you done a complete virus and spyware scan? Perhaps there is a virus on your system causing this issue?

          I second this. Install SP3 and see if it resolves the issue. If not, take the next steps in spyware and virus scanning.

            Ok I found out what the problem was. I installed a new version of myspace IM the other day & forgot I did. This was causing the double turn off issue. I ended the process with the task manager and my pc turned off in one try, so I uninstalled it & my pc turns off in one try now. Thanks for the suggestions though.
