Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

Windows xp shutdown after entering ipconfig

I always experience a system shutdown after entering ipconfig in start/run. The system shuts down instantly after entering ok on ipconfig. This did not happen before. Is it a virus? I am quite sure my computer works fine. I tried the internet to search for the answer to this (also microsoft support) but cannot find out why? Aside from this, my computer has no other problem at all (I hope...). Many thanks in advance for your help and time.

Go to Start > Run and type services.msc. Locate the nVidia Driver Helper item and right click it. Select Properties. Set the startup value of the service to “Manual” or “Disabled”.
Your computer should shut down normally now.

Windows xp shutdown after entering ipconfig, cmd on start-run...


could be a virus

do a system restore if possible to before the issue stated, then run a virus scan (maybe run an online scan in case your installed antivirus has been infected) something like housecall.trendmicro.com

If you cannot do a system restore in full windows, try it in safe mode (tap F8 during boot, select safe mode)

Windows xp sp2 reboot


You can start by downloading GUIDED HELP .

This application is provided for free in the Microsoft Knowledge Base.

The registry is a volatile environment to enter without prior experience

or the presence of a full backup.

Startup and shutdown issues are addressed by a variety of registry keys

and you can destroy your system with good intentions. This is an area

best addressed by Microsoft as I have seen mixed results with so-called

registry cleaners. Also get a full understanding of how to use ASR

in Windows XP.

Hope this gets you started.....................Nate P.

Windows XP shutdown


The computer is just doing it's internal diagnostics before it shuts down. This uses fairly little amount of physical memory. Every computer handles it differently depending on your configuration. If the computer does shut down on it's own....there is no real problem present.

Help with a system shut down?


Hi, does it let you get into windows then give you a 60sec countdown if it does, its a virus. its kinda easy to fix this one,
Once its into windows click start button, click run then type
shutdown -a (press enter)
this should stop the countdown
you need to download or install a new virus checker,
http://www.softpedia.com/get/Antivirus/Panda-Antivirus-Titanium.shtml
this one is good and lasts 30days free,
Remove viruses and should work fine..

Have a good christmas

John

Ps you will have to do the run, shutdown -a everytime the countdown appears until the virus is removed...
