hi guys
i dont know if this can be called a problem or not.. but the thing is, everytime i shut down my computer running XP Pro, i get a black screen with the XP logo....and below it, there's a line saying "It is now safe to shut down your computer".
I'm a newbie to XP( installed it just yesterday), earlier when i had win98SE, the computer used to power-off on shut down. i just had to switch off the power switch on the electricity board. But in XP, the logo n the line mentioned above just stay there! Is it alright to just power-off the computer manually using the power button on the cabinet?
This sounds funny but..where's scandisk in xp? i could see only disk defregmenter in Start>accessories>system tools! does XP not do scandisk on an improper shutdown??
with regards,
umesh
