I have put the following into task manager: Adobe update, Jave update and shutdown. None of these are executing and running! Can anyone tell me why? Maybe I am not doing it right?? Running windows xp home edition, sp3.

Thanks, Joe

Shutdown should be an option form Task Manager's menubar. The others would need to be entered under the Processes tab>File menu>New Task box but in the form of the exeuteable file. Try wuauclt.exe for Windows Update Automatic Update CLienT and then hit Enter.

Shutdown was not an option in my task manager menu but I got it working by putting a space, dash and s on the end of the exe so it looks like this:

shutdown.exe -s

The "s" on the end makes it execute the shutdown and now it is working.
