I installed IE6 from the windows site last week and it takes forever now for windows to close down when I shut down so I have had to turn off at the power each time. I am uncertain as to which bits I could safely delete so am still wondering what to do.

Do you get any type of message on your screen like 'Windows is now shutting down'?

Do you have Fast Shutdown enabled? I can't really see how installing IE6 would have changed this but you could check.

To enable it do the following

Click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to System tools, and then click System Information.

On the Tools menu, click System Configuration Utility.

On the General tab, click Advanced.

Click the Disable Fast Shutdown check box to clear it, click OK, and then click OK again.

Click Yes when you are prompted to restart your computer.

I do get the message straight away about windows shutting down.

It still closes quickly when I am just on the computer.

I had a look at that fast shutdown you mentioned but haven't tried it yet because of all those warning messages above about not changing anything. Will look at doing that later maybe.

I am using another browser just now to see if there is any difference when I close.

I DID end up checking the disabling of fast shutdown as nothing has worked so far, but windows kept on restarting over and over each time I clicked on shutdown, so I returned it to the way it was.

So I am still trying out things.
