I'm running XP and for the last 2 months something has changed on shutdown. I open Start , Turn Off Computer, Turn Off and perform my normal one click but other than a whirring nose in the tower and the green light coming on momentarily on the floppy drive nothing happens. I have to go back and repeat the proceedure one more time for shutdown.

This also happens when installing a program and the window appears saying that it needs to reboot to install...when I click OK nothing happens. I have to go to Start, Turn Off Computer, and click on Restart.

I have also noticed that when my browser opens and I click on the dropdown menu for the stored URLs it won't open on the first click, it flashes momentarily but ut takes the second click to view. This only happens initially from then on the menu drops down on and subsequent single clicks.

Any suggestions?

You aren't using Firefox as your browser by chance are you?
