If this is a Windows 8 system, it sounds like you are having issues with the new 'hybrid shutdown' feature. I would suggest that you hold the power button for about 7 seconds at the cursor, this should turn off your PC. Then if you want to disable the hybrid shutdown, read the article in the link.

Not Displaying Logon, Logoff, Startup and Shutdown Status Messages


To turn these off:
  1. Start Regedit
  2. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\system
  3. If it is not already there, create a DWORD value named DisableStatusMessages
  4. Give it a value of 1

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.

Daughter deleted some of the programs on the computer, how would i just set the computer back to start/just purchased settings so that i can lock everything so that she does not do this again? Thanks in...


when you bought your computer you must have got a back up cd with it to reinstall everything as it was.. I mean factory installed/default.. If you did not got this cd try this:


Using Windows 7 or Vista System Restore

Windows 7 and Vista has a feature called System Restore that automatically backs up registry and system files whenever you install new software or drivers. This feature is useful when you install evil software that makes your computer run really slow. But don't worry, System Restore won't remove Windows Vista/7.

Using System Restore in Windows

There are two places that you can use the system restore feature from. From within Windows, you can just type restore into the Start menu search box, and you'll immediately see System Restore at the top of the start menu:


Or you can type rstrui into the search box and hit enter. Your choice.

You will immediate see a screen where you can choose to roll back the system to the last restore point. You can select "Recommended restore", and just click next, or you can choose a different restore point.

If you do choose a different restore point, you will see a list of restore points that you can choose from. How many times have I typed the word choose at this point?

Click one of them, and you will have to confirm and then restart your computer to roll the system back.

If you receive an error while restoring, then use it from safe mode and it should work fine. To get into Safe mode, you can reboot and use the F8/F2 key right before Windows starts up.

If Your System Won't Boot

If you can't even get into windows, you can boot off the installation dvd, and choose the "Repair your computer" option on the lower left hand side. If you don't have an installation/repair disc, you can make one with these instructions.

Click next on the next screen, and then choose System Restore from the System Recovery dialog. It will take a few seconds to come up, and you will see the same screen that you would see in Windows:

Click next, and on the next screen select the drive that your copy of Windows 7 or Vista is installed on.

Click Finish, and Windows will roll back to the previous restore point. Really pretty simple stuff.


hope this helps you out, if it helped you out please like/rate the answer please, it will really help

Computer is stuck "logging off." What should I do to shut down and login?


If there's no other problem with it, just remove the power chord and the battery, again reconnect the power chord and reinstall the battery. You can now reboot the system.

Good luck.

You have to enter following command in command prompt.

c:\>shutdown -m \\it -s

Shutdown - This is the command u use to shutdown/restart/etc
-m - It means remote computer.
\\it - This is the computer name which you want to shutdown
-s - You have to enter this command (-s = Shutdown, -r = Restart, -l = Logoff, -a = Abort shutdown)

Hope this is working for you. If not, comment back with the problems. Thank You...!!

Cd drive does not read/recognize disks


I have seen such problem when you have apple itunes or quicktime player installed in Microsoft Windows Vista.Only unstalling the said softwares solve the problem.Microsoft and Apple doesn't comes out with any solution till now.

but if you don't have itunes or quicktime player installed in your system,Try out the procedure below

Try to turn off the vista's burning feature. 

It's not yours or anyones burners....just an update in vista which buggered the policies up 

Go to your run command and type (start.....Run.....) 
type gpedit.msc 
Go to User configuration/Administrative templates/Windows components/Windows explorer 
On the right pane, double click on "Remove CD burning features" tick the enabled button, then OK. 
Reboot or logoff/logon to apply. 

If your vista version does not have the gpedit function, do the following. 
Open regedit, go to: 

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer 

In the right pane, if it does not already exist, create a new 32-bit DWORD value. Name the new value as NoCDBurning, and assign the value data to 1. 
Reboot or logoff/logon to apply. 

This should fix the problem
