When I shutdown the computer, it hangs on "Windows Shutting Down" and won't shut down. Also, I have no sound and when I check the startup sounds and such, it displays that there's a problem with the files. Can anyone help me?

I searched once before and was told to change the start up and shutdown sound file to fix it, but only worked temporarily.

You have no sound at all times or just those files don't work?.
Try setting no sound for the shutting down proccess.

welcome to geekstogo
The problem here is that it could be many things, and the two problems you mention could also be different from one another. Unless someone else has another idea I would do a system restore back to a point prior to the problem, also I would do a spring clean of the system.

hi,

You could try SFC (System File Checker)
It can fix certain issues in Windows where specific system files get corrupted, deleted, or infected. Basically the System File Protection watches the system files and checks their integrity against it's knowledge of what these files are supposed to look like. Generally if a system file get's "messed with" windows will let you know and give you the option to dissallow the change, sometimes you don't get this option though. The System File Checker is a command line utility that will initiate a scan of all the system files to make sure they are in their original state, present on the system, and or working properly. It's an easy tool to use but the user HAS to have an XP disk for it to work.

cheers...xxx1
