    Computer will not shut down
    My computer will not shut down restart, log off or do anything short of a cold shutdown.
    It is damaging my computer every time I have to do a cold shutdown!
    A process called logonui.exe may be preventing me from shutting down; for a split second when I attempt to shut down it jumps to the top of the processes list and then disappears.
    these are the errors that I found in the event viewer system section:

    "the attempt to reboot YOUR-4F1261A8E5 failed"
    "the attempt to power off YOUR-4F1261A8E5 failed"
    "the device, \Device\Harddisk0\D, has a bad block."

    System info:
    OS Version: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, Service Pack 3, 32 bit
    Processor: Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 2.93GHz, x86 Family 15 Model 4 Stepping 1
    Processor Count: 1
    RAM: 503 Mb
    Graphics Card: Intel(R) 82845G/GL/GE/PE/GV Graphics Controller, 64 Mb

    Please help!

    P.S. Let me know what info may be missing that you would need in order to help me!

    Better run chkdsk /r on your drives or get a test from the drive manufacturer. Your hard drive may be failing. Hopefully, you have a recent system backup.

    Try HD Tune on the drive. Uncheck the box under Error Scan where it says "Qucck" so it will do a complete scan.
