Question about Computers & Internet

I have a software program that will not close unless I turn the computer off. It holds on to the resources and stays in a shut down mode the whole time. I just cannot find out what is causing it.

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.

Wait a few minutes for the non-responding program to start responding again. Be patient and give it some time. This is the easiest way to salvage any work that you did not save before the freeze. If, after waiting, the computer does not unfreeze, move to the next step.
Press and hold the "Ctrl", "Alt" and "Del" buttons in that order. This may unfreeze the computer, or bring up an option to restart, shut down or open the task manager. Open the task manager and note if a program is listed as "not responding." If there is one, click that program title and click "end task." The computer will end that task and break it out of the freeze. If this does not work, open task manager and go to "processes." Look for a process toward the top of the list that is using a large amount of resources. The number next to the process indicates how much of the resources are being allocated for that program. Pick one with the highest number (towards the top of the list) and choose "end process." If your computer still is not unfrozen, move to the next step.
Change the power source of your laptop. For example, if the laptop was plugged in to the wall, remove the plug and allow it to run on battery power. If this does not work, proceed to the next step.
Remove any devices, such as thumb drives or memory cards, that are plugged into the laptop. If this does not unfreeze the computer, move to the next step.
Close the lid of your laptop. Open the lid again. This may snap the computer out of its frozen state and back to the login screen. It may also put the computer into hibernate mode. If this does not work, move to the next step.
Hit the power button. This might bring up a menu asking you if you want to restart or shut down. At this point you will need to restart or shut down the computer. You will most likely lose what you were working on, unless the program has a recovery process to save your work if this situation arises. If the menu does not pop up, hold the power button until the computer shuts down. Wait 30 seconds, then boot the computer up again

Whenever I do a full system scan for viruses with system shield, computer says the program has stopped working and will close. What does this mean and how do i fix it?


The computer may have been infected before installation of the anti-virus software. You should try booting into Safe Mode and running the scanner from there. In order to get to safe mode, properly shut down your computer. Turn the power back on and tap the F8 key. This will get you to a boot selection screen. Select Safe Mode with Networking and the computer will boot into safe mode with the ability to get online. Then run the virus scanner.
I highly suggest downloading TDSSKiller from Kaspersky, as well. This is a rootkit detection and removal program. You can get that program here, and that will detect any malicious software on the computer that may not be picked up by any antivirus.

How to log off


If you log off you only close your user session under windows, not turn off the computer.

If you suspend you turn off almost everything in the laptop like hardwire, cd or dvdrom and most peripherals but the computer stays on the consuming power.

If you hibernate what windows does is to store all in memory in a temporary file in the hard drive and turn off all the computer so when you turn it on again it will be as you last session with all your programs and documents you left open.

And if you turn off the computer it will close all your programs, close windows and turn off all the hardware.

Inspiron 530S won't turn off


The one method that will always work to shut down a frozen computer is to hold down the power button on the front of the computer until it turns off. When you turn it back on, it will give you an option of different startup modes, and unless it really is a serious problem, you can just go with "start Windows normally".

My home pc trouble in windows xp professional


Hi chirutha,

Which version of Windows are you running? I would suggest running System Restore to a point maybe a week ago and then trying it again. You can find System Restore from your Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools menu. System Restore for Windows is non-destructive and won't delete any data files (music, pictures, documents) that you've put on the computer. It's also reversible.

You can also access System Restore directly from booting into Safe Mode (after the system POST startup messages run when the computer is booted up, press F8 until the Windows Boot Menu comes up and select Safe Mode).

If you can't power your computer down, hold your breath and then hold the main power button for five seconds and it will shut down.

Your computer shuts down slowly because there are a lot of services that run in the background that have to close before the computer shuts down.

Another reason that it will be slow is because of some programs that stay in residence have to close too.

Running defrag and scandisk will sometimes speed up startup and shutdown.
