Hi,

I posted this in the Malware section by mistake:


After prolonged use of XP the system will not shutdown properly, which forces me to manually shutdown, which I am told is not good for the screen or harddrive. Also along with this problem, when th epc is left for 10-15 minutes it goes into sleep mode, which would be fair enough if I was able to get back out, but im not.

I have installed service pack 2, and various other patches and fixes from the windows site but none of these seem to work for any real length of time. I have noticed that thiese problems are particulaly prevalent after playing FFXI online. I am almost sure this game is the problem, and was hoping you could confirm this to me.

For completeness I have done a HJT scan

you've got a lot of stuff running...

If I were to guess, I would say that you have a memory leak in some process and that is leading to your shutdown problems.

I don't, however, think the coming out of standby problem would be related to that.

So, maybe two, unrelated problems?

Anyway, one step at a time....shut down problem...what does this mean. I understand you have to manually shutdown, but what happens when you try to shutdown via the start menu?

I go to the start menu, shutdown, the pc gets to th elogoff screen and hangs at "Windows is shutting down". Its at this point (sfte rmaybe 20 minutes of hoping it will actually shut off) that I just press the power button and hold it till it switches off. Which I know is desparate but what else do i do

Hmm, maybe they are related....Right click MY COMPUTER, choose PROPERTIES, choose HARDWARE, choose DEVICE MANAGER, double click COMPTUER...what do you see beneath it?

What kind of motherboard do you have? (make/model)

Has this problem always been present, or is it new?

How new?

Also, START > RUN, type compmgmt.msc
hit enter

Look in event viewer...right click APPLICATION, choose clear all events, right click SYSTEM, choose clear all events (don't save either).

Shutdown.

Wait. Wait some more. Shutdown the way you normally do if it hangs.

do this again, START > RUN, type compmgmt.msc
hit enter

Go back to Application and SYSTEM...look for RED Xs and YELLOW !s.

Are there any?

ok the mother board is
ACPI Multiprocessor PC (if thats correct)

I went to run and did what you said. The pc shut down fine this time but thats probably because i didnt really use any programmes.


The PC has always been pretty slow, especially for a new pc. It literally only 6 months old.

ok i ran FFXI online and shut down and the pc froze.

So I have looked in System and the other thing and th efollowing is what is shown

in Application-
Warning 22/03/2005 Userenv None 1517 System HUGO

I checked what this means and got the following explanation



"Windows saved user HUGO|owner registry while an application or service was still using the registry during log off. The memory used by the users registry has not been freed. The registry will be unloaded when it is no longer in use

This is often caused by services running as a user account, try configuring the services to run in eithre the LocalService or NetworkService account.

For more infor see Help Centre at

htt[://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp"



Under system one red x appeared

Error 22/03/2005 ftdisk None 49 N/A HUGO

for which the description is

"Configuring the Page file for cash dump failed. Make sure there is a page file on the boot partition and that is large enough to contain all physical memory."

This is also in the description

0000: 00 00 00 00 01 00 56 00 ......V.
0008: 00 00 00 00 31 00 04 c0 ....1..À

You have two issues going on here:

First, download and install this:

User Profile Hive Cleanup Service

http://www.microsoft...&displaylang=en

This is one of my favorite windows gotchas...I've never found a good reason why this occurs for some people and not others, there seems to be no rhyme or reason.

As for the second error...how much harddrive space do you have?

Clean out your temp files with this:
http://www.ccleaner.com/

If your pagefile is set to a fixed size, change it back to let windows handle it.

Defrag your harddrive
Start > run, type
cmd
hit enter
type
compmgmt.msc
hit enter
choose disk defragger


Run a chkdsk
Start > run, type
cmd
hit enter
type chkdsk /f /r
hit enter
answer yes when windows ask you to run at next start.
Reboot.
