What do you mean windows SP2 won't turn off? Uninstall it from the add/remove programs if that's what you want to do [I wouldn't suggest this] but if that's what you need to do go for it.

If the PC won't switch off, then i think the experts will need more details, or else just press the power button on your PC for 4 seconds and it will turn off immediately [to be used only in emergency]

So then why are you having a problem shutting down the PC? It should shut down if you try to shut it down with no problems. Not sure I get what you are trying to do or what the real problem is here :whistling:

Well with the info you have given me, i was not sure if this was the first time, or what OS you we're using, sometimes a simple reboot fixes certain issues, i am also speaking from what I have gone through, other than that, i am unable to help you.

Perhaps you should wait for someone more experienced to reply :-)
