Windows keeps shutting down unexpectedly


Your computer is overheating, it is shutting itself down to prevent damage to the internal components.

Your computer should be serviced by a computer technician. He/she will clean the components and chassis of dust. This will increase airflow over the components, meaning your system will be stable and will not shut down unexpectedly.

Take care!

I keep getting the message The data file 'personal folders' was not closed properly when I open Outlook, how can I prevent this from happening?


Hi,


The underlying reason why Outlook displays this "data file" check is very simple. There is a single flag in the header of the data file that is a Boolean value (True or False). While you use Outlook the value of this flag is constantly changing as the data file is updated. When the update begins the value is changed to False and then when the update completes the value is changed back to True (implying the update is finished and successful).


So, the key to the problem is the shut down process because once the Outlook.exe process is exited this flag value cannot be changed. If the Outlook.exe process was terminated prematurely or a 3rd party add-in did not properly set the flag value to True then the flag value can be left at False. If you start Outlook with a data file where the value of the flag is False you are guaranteed to see the "data file" check. If the value of the flag is True then you will not see the "data file" check.


Right now, there are a few known common causes for this issue:


- Shutting down Windows before the Outlook.exe process has exited

- 3rd party add-ins improperly "closing" the data file

- Outlook crashing

- Non-Outlook process accessing the data file

Regarding the post advised by Rod, I would like to explain more detailed:

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

When you shut down Outlook, the Outlook window goes away, but the Outlook.exe process can continue to run for some time. That's why you can see Outlook.exe sitting in Task Manager for a few minutes after closing the Outlook window. If you shut down Windows while the Outlook.exe process is still running Windows will not wait for the Outlook.exe process to exit. So, you increase the likelihood of encountering the "data file check" issue the next time you start Outlook (because the Outlook.exe process was not able to "close" your data file(s) completely before Windows was shut down).

On the other hand, if you leave Outlook running when you shut down Windows the Outlook.exe process will continue to run and exit on its own. When Windows is shut down, it sends messages to all visible window frames telling them to quit, and will wait for those programs to quit before shutting down. Not until all processes with open windows have exited will Windows finally shut down. This is somewhat counter-intuitive to most people as traditional training has always advised manually closing applications before shutting down Windows.

Something is not closing on exit. Try running in safe mode, then shut down. If it shuts down then something is loading and present in the taskbar which isnt closing down.

Windows 98 will not shut down


There are several reasons that can cause old Windows operating systems to shut down. Has this always been an issue or did it just start happening? If it just started, then think back to what you may have changed on the system...hardware or software. Remove software or hardware and try it again.

You can also try disabling the fast shut down sequence by following these steps:
1. Go into msconfig (this can be done by typing msconfig under the command prompt)
2. Go into advanced.
3. Put a check mark in the disable fast shutdown box.
4. Click ok and ok again.
Try shutting it down.

If that doesn't do the trick or its already disabled then check out this link:

I hope that helps. Check back and let me know! Thanks.

Shut down services


If you are using Windows XP, follow these steps.

Open your Control Panel, click "Performance and Maintenance", and then go to "Administrative Tools". Go to "Local Security Policy".

Under 'Security Settings' -> 'Local Policies' -> 'Security Options', find "Shutdown: Allow System to be shut down without having to log on" and enable it.

That should take care of it.
