    i have a problem with shutting down xp completely. every time it goes to shut down it, just before it goes all the way a blue screen flashes and disapears instantaneously and then the computer reboots! it wont power down all the way unless i kill my powerstrip. any ideas? it just started doin this after running smoothly for a month. only other thing is that i just installed the latest roxio easy cd creator (v5.02b)

    There's a well known relation between Easy CD Creator and Windows XP shutdown problems.
    Check Roxio support for more details.

    Good luck,

    oh ok thanks. ive already tried doin that patch thingy but after doin that windows disabled both my burner and dvd drive. so when i tried to install drivers for those drives i couldnt use either drive for my cds! so i used system restore and reverted back. looks like i will have to put up with the crash until roxio can release a real fix. what a crock having to put up with that after having to buy version 5 of easy cd creator because 4 aint compatible with xp!
