I was wondering what is the easiest way to prevent windows xp from going to the the shutdown screen when turning off the computer. Every time I go to shutdown I have to wait for the screen and then hit the power button to turn the cpu off.
I have recenlty updated the BIOS and that did not resolve the issue.

what doe you mean the shut down screen?
If you are talking about the screen that says "Windows is shutting down" then this is perfectly normal, and to the best of my knowledge cannot be avoided. But why would you want to avoid it?
