Hard to say... try holding the control + alt + del keys to open the task manager... you can end background programs from there might be a good start to finding your problem-matic program

Acer Aspire 7560 wont restart


Before shutting down your system click on any programs still running and shut them down. This will cut the time for normal shut down to take place.

You could also run a hard drive diagnostic to see if it has any errors. There might be some if you don't let the computer shut down itself. Restarting can also cause the programs to become corrupt, if they didn't shut down right. Running a defrag on the drive will also help it shut down quicker.
Look on the net also for information on getting your PC to shut down quicker.

When I shutdown my hp laptop last night it wouldn't shutdown. It keeps saying shutting down. Any ideas to help me


Most likely just a hung program, you can find out which one by hitting and keeping depressed ctrl then alt then delete and your task manager will pop up click the programs tab and see what programs are still running and then fix or remove said program.

P8b75-mle will not shut down


Hit control alt delete and look and see how many running programs you, most of the time it is a background running program that locks up the shut down process. On average you should have only 60 to 70 programs running. Reduce these and your start ups and shut downs will be much quicker, there are third party software that can enable you to do this with ease, or you can search google .

Windows not shutting down


If there are programs (Norton, McAfee, other bigger programs) running in the background it will take a while for Windows to shut down. If you can't wait for it to shut down, you can press/hold the power button down for a few seconds and Windows will shut down.

What do you mean by this error? "The instruction at 0x003bfc61 refferd memory at 0x305eff8 the memory could not be written".


most likely it is a software error, as the pc is shutting all of the running programs down to turn off the PC, that is where the error comes in, you could try to stop some of the background programs to try to figure out exactly what app it is refering to. It will probably not harm anything unless it is a program like word or something and you haven't saved the document, if that can't be written before the PC shuts down, you would lose your work. If it is a memory issue with the actual RAM, you can run a memory test in windows under all programs Administrative Tools, or in the control panel under Administative Tools, and then Memory Diagnostics, to check the hardware,
Please give a fixya if this helps or solves your problem

Programs running in background on my pc


The trick is to choose which programs run at startup. These background programs will slow your computer down. I use "startup optimizer", this free software will rank your startup programs, allow you to research the need for each, and turn on or off the program. It also lets you create a backup file, just incase you turn off too many options and screw up your computer.
