When I shut down my PC (Compaq Presario CQ5600y/AMD Athlon) running Windows 7, I get a quick message that says something like program running force shut down? (although nothing is running that I know of). It only started doing this this week. Any ideas whats wrong? Once I click on the "force shut down" button, my PC shuts off fine, but I would like to know what the "force shut down" is all about. Thank you.
That means that a background process is still running and you need to wait for it to complete for the machine to complete the shutdown.
Can you post the process name, it is on the "force shutdown" window?
The "force close" button only appears onscreen for 1 maybe 2 seconds then machine closes down properly without me doing anything. It goes by too fast to see which program must be causing the trouble....any ideas?
