About a week ago I installed adobe reader 8.1. Since then I haven't been able to shut down my computer the right way. When I go to start and click then click on turn off computer the shut down box never comes up. I end up having to push the power button to turn it off. I know this will eventually do harm (if it hasn't already) is there anything I can do besides reformatting. I have all the disk to reformat, but would rather not if I can get this fixed.

My hard drive crashed last year, it was an 80 gig, I replaced it with a 300 gig. Haven't had any problems until last week after I downloaded adobe. I uninstalled it this morning, but it still don't work.

Thanks

Did you try System Restore from more then one week ago?
Yes, I went all the way back to Feb. It says can't restore to that date because no changes have been made since then.

Go "Run, msconfig,ok,startup" and uncheck every referenece to Adobe or Adobe Reader, hit apply and then reboot.
