    pc boots up fine, it just wont shut down completely!



    i select start/shut down/restart it goes through the normal shut down or restart sequence as follows -



    saving your setting

    windows is shutting down



    once that last dialog dissapears it just reamins on a blank blue screen, the pc is still running

    Hi PCDown,
    What operating system are you using? Is your system updated via Windows Update because as i read some threads, Microsoft has a fix on it.

    Hi Pcdown;
    when you say bluescreen, do you mean blue screen of death? does it have some information on it?

    so basically your pc won't boot up now right?

Hi PC;
try booting up in safe mode then shutdown from there, see if you still hang on the blank blue screen.

to go to safe mode, tap F8 when your pc is booting up.

get back to me for feedback. :)

    Hi PCdown,
    so there was a application in your pc that was not shutdown properly, can you browse your pc and see if you have some software that you use on boot up? most likely some of it are also the ones that would stay behind on shutdown,

    so before you shutdown, look at your taskbar and choose a software there that you would like to manually end the task with and see if you can shutdown properly. hope you can find that piece of software thats been bugging you.hehehehe...

(Important: Before uninstalling your McAfee product, please make sure that your Norton is functioning properly and is up-to-date for better protection of your system.)

Are you using free trial version of McAfee virus protection or is it paid?
Here's how you can remove McAfee from your system:
You can remove the application from your system by following the uninstallation steps mentioned below:
For Windows 8 users:
1) Close all McAfee program windows.
2) In the Start screen, type "Programs and Features". (If it is not visible, click "Settings" in the list on the right.)
3) Click "Programs and Features" in the list on the left.
4) Select "McAfee SecurityCenter".
5) Click "Uninstall" and follow any on-screen prompts.
For Windows 7 and Vista users:
1) Close all McAfee program windows.
2) Click "Start", go to "Search", then type "Programs and Features", and click "Go".

4) Select "McAfee Security Center".
5) Click "Remove" and follow any on-screen prompts.

If you are not able to completely remove McAfee from your system by following the above steps, you can consider using McAfee Consumer Product Removal (MCPR) tool to uninstall the application successfully.

I am starting to see we are sorry,but an internal error occured please reinstall the product to fix the problem. error-code:1/-3/10900 see doc#5305 And again the INCD helper service is not correctly...


That INCD service or component is a part of Nero. It gets installed with Nero. This was a common problem of Nero 7. What you can do is uninstall and re install the product. You have to use an uninstaller program available (such as your uninstaller) to remove the registry keys as well. Its clearly indicating that the programs is not successfully installed. Note: If you try to install Nero 9 in a Windows XP SP2 environment or in a Windows 7 environment you might receive the same error. Those are compatibility issues. You have to use SP3 in XP and you have to purchase Nero 10 for Windows 7. Incd is not necessary to function Nero. Try to install without Incd. You can do that while installing. Choose the Customized Installation. If you are using Nero 7, I recommend to use Nero 6 or 8 and upwards.
You can download Nero from their web site or using a torrent as well. Some funny things may happen when Nero gets installed partially. Go to Properties by Right Clicking the Taskbar and untick "Hide inactive icons" check box. Click on "Customize". Check the "Behavior property and for the programs which have the setting "Always Hide", select "Always Show" option. Then Apply and click on OK button.
Contact me further if you still have the problem. If the solution works for you please be kind enough to rate the answer as well :-)

I . asked a friend of mine who is a PC Guru and he has a programme for removing it. But and it is a big But!, you have to use the pro gramme first. once you have tried to un-install it yourself it does not work. In the end I had to wipe the Hard Drive and reload windows. Nero Very naughty and I was not a very happy chappy. Previous experience I,d already made a back up of my program mes but it was still time consuming.
