About a week ago I started experiencing intermittent issues with shutting down. This Windows XP Professional running Norton Internet Security. There have been no major changes in the system. Do use two of my USB ports, one for a camera and one for a thumb drive. Click on start, shutdown and a something appears to "pop" on the desktop, too quick to read though. If I try to run anything (sol as an example) I get a message that the "DLL failed to initialize because Windows is Shutting Down". This can take upward of five minutes and then finally the desktop icons disappear. After several more minutes I finally get the "Saving Settings" Message and it shuts down. All other aspects of the PC seem good. AdAware and Spybot scans reveal nothing. Last night it did something similar with the exception of getting a message that SW was not responding, end task, which I did. The night before it was fine... It's a Dell Dimension 3000 series purchased earlier this year, 160gb drive, 1gb memory.
Here is a copy of my Hijackthis log... (if it will help)Removed HJT Log
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated...
