Lately I have to shut down twice before my computer turns off. I've defragmented the drive. checked everything I could think of to do. Any suggestions? i have a Dell Dimension 3000 desk computer - dual core and lots of ram.
That happens to me occasionally on one of my XP systems, and I have never been able to track down the problem. I suspect it is a background program that misses the first shutdown message, but I have no idea why that would happen.
