Hello,

You get a Blue Screen of Death? If so can you post up the info it provides? The Stop Error code which will look like this:

0X000000ZZ where ZZ is a alpha numeric combination.

Also there shoud be a line of in all Caps. If it BSOD's then does it create a minifump file? If so that would be of great assistance to us as well to help you try and resolve this issue.

Cheers,
Mak

Hello,

It sounds as if it is sticking on the Profile saving steps. Maybe create a new profile and import your current profile and see if that helps?

Cheers,
Mak

pressing the power button is not good
please download uphclean
install it and restart your computer
then run chkdsk /r

open my computer
on C:Drive right click properties
click tools tab
press check now
put check in both boxes and press start
you will get a message
chkdsk cannot run another volume is using it
at this point just restart your computer
chkdsk takes about 1 or 2 hours to reach desktop
please do not disturb this

Since this computer belongs to my company, I dont want to make significant changes such as uninstalling Mcafee..
