Windows take a long time to shut down


Uninstall unused programs. Get an up-to-date Antivirus program and scan your computer. Also get Malwarebytes to look for any Trojans. Windows Vista is notorious for taking a long time to boot or shutdown after a few years. Time to move to Windows 7 if you can, it has tighter code. Windows 8.1 is even better, but some hate the interface.

Windows Shutting down my computer every 1 hour or so....


First try going to the Microsoft Windows update web site and seeing if your system is in need of updates or patches. http://update.microsoft.com/microsoftupdate/v6/default.aspx?ln=en-us
You may need a patch as I have recently found with several machines running XP having the same problem, even though I see that you are running Vista. If it is only happening with Microsoft Office programs then you could run a repair on Office. This link will guide you through the process. http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/help/HP052372001033.aspx Worst case scenario is that you would have to uninstall and then reinstall Office. If it is happening with other non Microsoft programs then you could have a hardware or driver problem. If this is the case hopefully you are still under warranty and can contact the manufacturer for assistance.

My desktop cannot shut down? After i install game that i download.


Try removing the game driver from the system then see if the problem is fixed. If this fixes the problem, make sure you have the correct drivers for VISTA. Most Vista platforms are 64 bit and if you are using a 32 bit driver that will cause the problem. Check for an updated game driver from the company that makes your driver. If they have had issues with VISTA and who hasn't they may just have a new driver for you. Good Luck with VISTA!

My PC with Vista Home Premium is caught in a loop


One of the updates is not installing properly. The only thing you can really do in this case is to use your Windows Vista installation disk and try to either repair or restore to a previously known good restore point. Hope this helps.
