    Hi Davidabraham.

    Thanks for your response. How can I go to "delete the paging file" please?

  • Northridge Jan 13, 2009


    I've just checked and found that it's already been disabled.

    Any other suggestions, please?

  • Northridge Jan 13, 2009

    Thanks again. I 've followed your instructions. Yet, in my computer, there is no APM tab. Strange!

  • Northridge Jan 14, 2009

    Yes, I just did that on the desktop. No APM. How come?

It seems to me that You need to uncheck the "delete paging file at shutdown". Deleting the paging file slows the shutdown of Your system considerably.

Starting up the shuting right down

Viral infection is most likely the cause. Did you either recently install or update an antivirus program, or use one of those "remote fix your computer" services? Can you take the computer to safe mode?
