I have just noticed that after I shut down my PC i goes through the process of the normal shutdown and then the screen loses signal as normal but now the PC continues to run for about another 1 minute with the HD light flashing as if very busy. Then the PC will stop as normal.
I am running windows XP SP3 all fully updated. All running programs seem to end as it shuts down as they disappear from the task bar as they are closed.
I am running AVG 9. full updated, with Malwarebytes, spybot S&D, and Spywareblaster. There is noting of any significance found in scans by any of these. Just tracking cookies.
Is there something happening that I should know about or is this normal with a late windows update as I have not seen this happen before. Normally, the monitor will lose signal only a second or two before the machine stops running.
I have checked on all running programs in "Windows task Manager" before shutting down and I can see nothing wrong there.
Am I being paranoid, or is there a problem?
