Each time we turn of our computer it says that ccaapp or something like that isnt responding and asks wether or not it should shut it down. It's a pain in the ace when i want to hurry up and hit shutdown and just walk away. Can anyone help me or know anything about this?

That's a file from Norton Antivirus. Norton is known for draining a ton of resources. I would suggest another antivirus. Take a look in my signature for links.

Look here as this person had the same problem you are appearing to have,http://www.geekstogo...topic=88897&hl= I also had this problem with Norton, I now use AVG free and Zone Alarm which i find better for two reasons, there free and AVG picks up more viruses, than Norton on my computer.

How are you doing Ma13tt0??

I read the article about your problem and I thought I could help you out with that.
I know about a trick in the regedit that can help your computer kill any application like the one you said and also turn off your computer faster. All you have to do is this:
Start - Run - in the open box type regedit and press ok.
Now that you are in the regedit go to:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/Desptop.
Now, when you're there locate the key called: WaitToKillAppTimeout: give double click in it and change the value 20.000 to 4.000.

Now, without leaving the regedit go to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/System/CurrentControlSet/Control
Now, that you are there locate again the key: WaitToKillAppTimeout, give double click in it, and change the value again from 20.000 to 4.000.
Now you close the regedit and the next time you turn off the computer windows will kill any "not want to close" program.

Hope I Helped!! :)

Please do not set the font so large. I reduced it. Thanks. :tazz:

Hi, I am having a similar problem. After working the computer hard... playing an MMO... backing up my files... my computer doesn't want to shut down. I have to hold down the power button. I am running Vista on a Sony Vaio. I was trying to edit my registry as you suggested but could not find the WaitToKillServiceTimeout under HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/Desktop. I did find it under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/System/CurrentControlSet/Control. Is that going to be a problem that I only changed it under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/System/CurrentControlSet/Control?
