Why does my computer almost always come up with a black box say something to the effect of "Task Manager is closing background programs......" when I try to shut down?


There are many "processes" that run in order to provide services to the user and the application programs you install. I've seen system with as many as 85-100 processes running with no actual applications open. Occasionally, these processes take extra time to close down if there are other processes preventing them from doing so immediately at shutdown. To avoid corrupting the processes, the OS alerts you, the user to the extra time needed so you don't think there are any problems. You may have the option to force them closed, but unless you are willing to risk a corrupted file, doing so is not wise. Be patient and wait. This is a normal occurrence that will happen from time to time.

After i use partitionmagic to merge drive (D & E ) and rename to D the Drive D disappear and wheni check error it shown Error #1520 Externak attribute header mismatch How to solve this problem


This error occurs when the PC hard disk has error(s) and your using particular software as you have mentioned like partition magic. To solve this problem shut down all your applications and running software.
If you are using Windows XP
Go to Start>Run>In the run box type cmd
A black Window will open its called CLI or Command line interface. In this Window run the following command on the C partition CHKDSK /F if the message appears"Check the system next time the system restarts (Y/N) type "y". then type "d:"to enter D partition. When the D prompt (D:) appears type the same check disk /Fix command which is "CHKDSK /F" and hit enter.
Similarly repeat this command for all the partitions.
If the this option statement appears "would you like to force dismount on this volume? (Y/N). Select "Y".
If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7 then when you perform the first step which is Start>Run>In the run box type cmd before hitting enter in the start menu look for a small black icon named cmd on the top of the start menu. Right click it and select "Run as Administrator" When the black cmd window opens all the steps after that are the same as described above.

Good Luck!

Will not boot


If you dont have the option to run:
"Windows XP Recovery Console"
You probably have to install windows on a second PHYSICAL drive, Disconnect the failing one first!
Reconnect the failing drive in slave mode.
1. Start/Run "cmd.exe"
2. execute "chkdsk /F /R /X D:"
3. Shutdown
4. Swap drives.
5. Start system (while praying :) )

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)
