I don't know what I did but when I "logoff", the next screen the comes up does not have "shutdown" highlighed for me to use. I have to log back in and then go to task manager to shutdown. How do I get the original "shutdown" feature working again?

How can i reboot my computer please


Rebooting a computer means, pressing the Reset/Restart button. But if you wish to securely restart it, click Start (Windows XP) and then "ShutDown" button, again click "Restart". There's another option when Windows XP is in Classic mode, once you press the Shutdown button, you'll see a small window showing "Shutdown", you can click the arrow button next to the "Shutdown" and then select "Restart", now click the "Ok" button to restart the system. In Windows Vista and Windows 7, click "Start", if you don't see the "Restart" button, you might be seeing the "Shutdown" button, just next to the "Shutdown" button, there's a small right arrow button, click it and select "Restart". Your system will restart.
Let me know if you need further help.
Good Luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Here's how to create a shutdown shortcut on your desktop


Instead of going to the start menu, choosing shutdown, then waiting for the computer to shut all the programs down, you can create a shortcut on the desktop to do it quickly. You can create a shutdown, restart, or a logoff icon on your desktop which will work a lot quicker than using the usual buttons in the start menu.
Here's how to create a shutdown shortcut on your desktop

1. Go to your blank desktop
2. Right click on a blank space and a menu will appear
3. Choose New from the menu
4. Then choose Shortcut
5. Where it says type the location of the item type in shutdown.exe -s
6. Then press next
7. Now enter a name for your icon. Mine is called SHUTDOWN NOW
8. Press next
9. The Shutdown shortcut will be on your desktop

Different combination you can type in when creating a shortcut to shutdown, restart, or logoff.


Shutdown.exe -s

Shutsdown your computer in 30 seconds and will close all programs and ask you to save all work.

shutdown.exe -r
Restarts your computer in 30 seconds.


shutdown.exe -l
This one will logoff your computer back to the welcome screen where you will need to login again.

shutdown.exe -s -t 1
Shutsdown your computer in one second. the -t 1 tells it how long to wait. (one second in this case) You can put -t 10 or even -t 1120.

shutdown.exe -s -t 15 -c "Goodbye you idiot"
This is my favorite code. It will shutdown in 15 seconds and have a message in the box saying "Goodbye you idiot"
The -c "bla bla bla" stands for a comment.

Notes:

* to stop the computer from shutting down type shutdown /a into the run box located in the start menu..
* -f will force everything to close immediately without asking to save anything.

Everytime i try to access my fb account, my daughter's comes up instead... i need to fix that, can u help?


You are using your daughter 'saved' user name and password: enter your own username and password on the signon/logon screen and if you are automatically logon, use the application 'LOGOFF' or 'SIGNOFF' function first before entering your own details.
Hope it helps.

Code in C Shutdown,Restart and Logoff Windows.


Hi,

Why do you need to write a program?
A simple script will work since windows has provided the program to you.

on command prompt type:
shutdown /R

this will restart your pc.
There are many more switches and variations for this command. Just explore.

There is no point to re-invent the wheel.

Hope this helps.
Thanks.

The computer is taking a long time to log off


This happens when too many application are opened at the same time, and closing them will take time because the PC's memory his full running different applications at the same time. To avoid this close other applications when your not using them.

My first suggestion would be to Do a system restore to anytime before you instaled the adobe

go ahead and go to
Start > Control panel > Performance and Maintenance : on the upper left hand side you should see system restore. select a date before you installed adobe.

this should reverse your problem, if not let me know then we can try step 2
