    I have a IBM monitor and tower and for a long time now it wont shut down properly, we have to hit esc to make it shut down. The page that say it is now safe to turn off your computer doesn't come up as normal. I have just had to fix the registry and am having various problems with this os.

    Thanx

    Go to c:\windows\temp and empty all files that are there. They are often the cause of hang when trying to shut down.

    A bloated startup load can also cause startup and shutdown problems. You should disable all unnecessary programs running in the background. Read here.

    If you have startup and shutdown sound clips, turn them off. You can do that in Sounds in the Control Panel. Change the sound clip in Windows Start and Windows Exit to None.
