When you shut down Windows, if you have any programs running you'll get a message box warning you that a program is still running. You then have to close the program and tell XP again to shut down. It's a fairly pointless warning—better yet would be if XP automatically killed the programs without issuing the warning. That way, you wouldn't get error messages and wouldn't have to close each individual application before shutting down your computer. To have XP automatically close programs at shutdown, run the Registry Editor and go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop. Edit the AutoEndTasks key so that is has a value of 1. If the key doesn't exist, create it as a DWORD value and give it the value of 1. To disable it, either delete the key, or set the value to 0.
If your HP computer refuses to power down, this means that there are still programs open that Windows can't close. Normally when you select the "Shut Down" button from your "Start" menu, Windows closes all open programs, then closes itself, and your basic input/output system (BIOS) turns off all of your hardware. If Windows can't close all open programs, your computer won't be able to power off. This means that you must close these programs yourself.
Right-click on the window of an open program on your Windows taskbar (Bottom of Screen) Click "Close Window." Windows manually closes the program. If a window appears on-screen indicating that Windows cannot get the program to close, click the "Force Close" button in this window to have Windows force the program to shut down. Repeat "Step 1" for any additional programs that are open on your computer. Click "Start." Click "Shut Down." Hope this helps.
It can be virus problem. Try to go in 'Safe mode with networking' (press few times F8 when computer start to get menu options). Download ESET (Nod32) Online Scanner: http://go.eset.com/us/online-scanner Scan your computer with repair option on. After that update your Windows. If you can't do that from Microsoft, you can use AutoPatcher.exe utility: http://www.autopatcher.com/downloads/ I don't think it is keyboard problem. You have free AVG good antivirus for homeusers. Good luck!
The easiest way, open your CD drive and with that open shut down your computer. Insert the Disk in the drive and close it then restart the computer. The installation program should start auto automatically as windows starts. The reason I said to shut down then reboot with the disk in the drive is to allow the program to scan your system before windows starts to speed up the install process. If you insert the Disk and close the drive while the computer is on it will auto start and scan the system anyway but it takes longer. Make sure you stop and uninstall any other anti virus programs or Anti Adware programs, such as Spy Bot, you may have running, the Adware programs only need to be closed.
TRY THIS :- Free up disk space. A hard drive that is close to being full will drastically slow down your computer. You can clear up space by deleting temporary internet files, empty your recycle bin, remove programs that you do not use, put important files on an external hard drive. Another way to free up disk space is to use "Disk Cleanup" on your Windows PC. To do this, click "start" and go to "Accessories", go to "System Tools", and click "Disk Cleanup". Scan for Viruses, Adware, and Spyware. These nasty programs can slow down your computer worse than anything. I would recommend purchasing software that can remove all three of these common problems. Don't automatically start up programs when you turn your computer on. Close any programs that you do not use that open when you start up your computer. These programs will run in the background and steal RAM (Random Access Memory). http://www.supportdock.com/
This may not fix your issue but its worth a try ...let me know how it goes
If the computer appears to shutdown and then attempt to restart without displaying an error message, do the following to disable the automatic restart on error setting.
Click Start , right-click Computer , and then select Properties .
Click Advanced system settings , grant permission to continue if prompted, and then click the Advanced tab.
Click Settings in the Startup and Recovery section of the Advanced tab.
Deselect the Automatically restart checkbox under System failure .
Click OK to close the Startup and Recovery window, click OK again to close the System Properties window, and then close the Control Panel window.
Restart the PC.
Disabling the automatic restart setting allows time to view the error message that displays on the screen. Contact the manufacturer of the program or device that is causing the error for specific information about the error message.
There is a program that is failing to shut down in general, which is delaying the computers ability to shut down.
The next time you shut down, make sure you have no programs open. Then, while attempting to shut down, wait until Windows pops up window asking you to close a non-responsive program. When it does, take note of the program that it mentions, then close it and see if Windows shuts down. Note: sometimes this takes a really long time.
Try re-installing the non-responsive program and see if your computer can shut down normally again.
The problem with streaming video/audio is that the protocol will take everything you have to throw at it. In order for it to work properly you will have to shut down everything except that one think. What it is doing is buffering. It downloads in chunks that it can cope with. Then it plays the chunk and then goes and gets some more. You may be better downloading the program/video (right click and choose save target as) and then playing it locally on your computer when it no longer has to stream from the internet. Streaming relies heavily on your bandwidth to the internet and the available processing power and memory on your computer.
