Just this week I haven't been able to restart or shut-down my PC. It gets as far as... "Windows is shutting down", and just hangs there for ever (at least after returning home from 12 hours of work, it's still trying to shut down).
Dell custom (sorry, I don't know what specific specs you need here).
Windows XP v5.1 build 2600 Service Pack 1.
What I have tried to do:
Disable Norton auto-protect
Scanned for viruses
scanned for adware, trojans, etc
What changes I can think of:
Installed auto-update for XP
Deleted temp internet files
I've gone back to a restore point prior to the update, but that didn't do it.
Is my HD ready to crash? What's going on? :cry:
