Slow computer shutdown

Tip #1: Cut down of the programs and processes running in the background.--When you start your computer many unnecessary processes are loaded. You can eliminate this by managing your msconfig.

Here is how:
1. Open your Start menu.
2. Click Run
3. In the command screen type "msconfig.exe"
4. In the system configuration utility,click either service or startup tab.
5. Uncheck all programs that your are no longer want to run in the background.
6. Click OK

Tip #2: Defrag your Computer--The faster your computer can find files the quicker it can shutdown. A very slow computer shutdown can be the result of your hard drive trying to search for disorganized and fragmented files that it needs for shutdown . Organize your hard drive by performing a defragmentation.
Here is how:
1. Open the Start Menu
2. Click on My Computer
3. Right Click your C: drive or your hard drive image.
4. Scroll down to the Properties and Click
5. In the Properties Menus, Open the Tools menu.
6. Choose Defragment Now.
7. In the Disk Deframenter menu. Click on Defragment

Tip #3: Clean your Registry- Usually slow computer shutdown often occurs due to a corrupted registry. You should perform a registry clean, use RegInOut to fix this issue instantly.

This message is telling you that the hard disk windows is on is corrupted beyond window's ability to fix it. While it is very slightly possible that formatting the disk and performing a totally fresh install may take care of the problem temporarily, it is a sure sign that if the hard disk is not totally dead already, it is heading that way now. Even if things appear to run perfectly fine after formatting to do a fresh install it's only a matter of time before it dies again. The best solution would be to replace the hard drive entirely. Good news is that of all the parts of your system that could have died, the hard drive is far from the most expensive, and considering the age of the system, even a cheap drive should be a step up in size from what you had previously.

Your computer has been corrupted by a virus or failing hard drive.
Search for the name of your operating system and repair in Google. (E.g. Windows XP repair)
You will find instructions that will tell you how to boot to your Windows CD/DVD and repair the problem.
Once you get the operating system running back up all of your important files.
Get a new hard disk, install the OS, programs, especially antivirus, and restore your data.
Otherwise, you run the risk of more virus damage or total drive failure.

Good luck!

I cant reformat my hard drive. (Windows XP)

Hi. There are several causes for this type of error. Either your Windows CD is corrupted, hardware is faulty (Motherboard, RAM, hard disk, video card, etc.). You may want to try to reformat your hard drive using another computer first just to isolate if your hard drive is faulty. If you can format it using another computer, try installing windows on that computer.

This could very well be an issue with your hardware. Most of the time when you get an OS corruption message it is either a virus or hardware failure.

From the hardware failure camp I would look into these items in this order:

1. Hard Drive:
Your files are all stored on your drive and if they can no longer be successfully read from or written to the device this will cause the problem. The Hard Drive is one of the few things in a PC with moving parts and makes it a prime part to fail.

You can go to your hard drive manufacture's website and download the files to make a boot able CD or usb drive that will boot up before windows and allow you to test your drive. If the drive fails the testsyou will need to replace it and reinstall vista.

2. Memory:

Bad memory can cause a huge amount of hard to explain issues with any computer. It is not as common as the hard drive failing, but it does happen.

Go to and download the iso image to create a bootable diagnostics disc like you did with the hard drive. This test will take several hours to run, but will give you the piece of mind that only knowing your memory condition can give you :)
If your memory fails the test this is the best case situation and you can simply remove the bad stick of memory if you have more than one stick installed or simply replace it with the same part.

Window\System32\Msconfig\System Missing or Corrupted

best trick would be to buy a new hard drive, because that does sound like it is the problem. try and get exactly the same one and rig the old one after you have the pc set up - usually you can get your files - you were just unlucky that the file where the hd is damaged was a windows start up file or it's address. It sounds like you know what you are doing though, so I recommend taking the whole machine apart and cleaning it, then when you put it back together plug a different power lead into your hdd from the power pack. sometimes the hd problem could be a power issue, or a bad connection somewhere - swap the ide or ata cable from your hd for a new one if you can, and try the hdd on another pc if you can, ideally as a second device so that you can see if you can access any files, but also as a startup drive. If you need any help with this, and if it doesn't solve your problem, please post again with the details of your motherboard and hdd, or the whole machine if it was an off-the-shelf one. There could be bios issues, or known hardware problems that we could then try and identify for you. also go on another machine to the windows troubleshooter website and see if they have anything that makes any sense (sometimes they do) Hope this helps :)
