Toshiba Tecra M10 hanging when windows is shutting down after an update


Are you sure you are not too fast or impatient for it. Sometimes after doing updates it might take awhile to get past the Windows is shutting down...

Give it some time and see what happens. If after 15 minutes it is still there, press and hold the Power Button until it shuts off then Reboot. Try shutting down again and see if it hangs.

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.

No power on will shutdown


Hello

First of all press ALT+CTRL+DEL and start Task Manager, there is probably some application (or other process) that is not reponding. You can kill them to let the shutdown continue, and know what is causing the problem and maybe find an update for it.

Also this means that your computer has not been rebooted properly since the installation of important system updates. If you have "Automatic Updates" scheduled on your machine, these updates could have downloaded and installed without your knowledge. To fix this issue, let the updates finish installing, reboot and then shut down your computer as normal.

Click "Start."

Click "Windows Update." Click "Install Updates" to begin the installation of any updates that have been downloaded to your Compaq Presario. When the "Restart Now" button becomes available, click it once. Your Compaq Presario will shut down Windows, finish installing the updates and then reboot your computer.

Click "Shut Down." Because the updates have finished installing and have been installed properly, your Compaq Presario will now shut down normally and will not immediately boot back up.

I was running the program "windon Defender" on it and walked away. When I returned the computer was off and wasn't turn back on.


The Windows Defender Application is the Antivirus Software which will be pre-installed with the Windows Operating System(Windows Vista, Windows 7).
The Computer will always Shut down after any Windows Updates or any Operating System Updates are downloaded and installed.
If you are connected to the Internet and running Windows Defender, the Computer will automatically download the Updates for the Windows Defender Application.
Once the Updates are downloaded and installed, the Computer will prompt for a shut down.
The count down will be for 10 seconds.
After 10 seconds, the Computer will install the downloaded Updates and shut down.
This might be the reason for the Computer to shut down while using the Windows Defender.

If the Computer still shuts down randomly, the issue might be due to overheating.
All the Processors in Notebooks are designed to shut down automatically, if there is any overheating issues.
The overheating issue mainly occurs due to the malfunction of the Cooling fan.
If the Computer shuts down frequently, the issue might be due to the above factors.
It would be better to get the Unit examined at the Service Center.

Whenever I log on, it stops on a screen that says 3 out of 3 updates loading-o%, then it shuts down, and turns back on...it will do this over and over until you finally shut it down.


You appear to have a Windows Update that is corrupt and not finishing the installation of the update.

Depending on the version of Windows, in your Windows Update screen should be an option to look at past updates.

You need to remove one update at a time until the screen showing an update in progress dosn't reappear.

Then I would attempt to redownload the updates via Windows update again.

You might have connected to interent and your windows updates are automatically downloaded. You need to install those updates. Actually it did not shut but power goes off may be it was on stand by mode. Now shut down (press Alt+F4) your laptop from menu. Choose Install Updates and Shut Down from the drop down list.
Now it will install updates and after completion it will automatically shut down your laptop. Hope it works
