Default Re: Stupid Windows

Reinstall because the computer wont shut down? That a waste of time..

Click "start" "Run" type regedit
Navigate to:
Code:
 HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
Look for
Code:
PowerDownAfterShutdown
make sure it's set to 1

If it's at 0 or something else double click it and chagne the value to 1

Notes: this may not work on the 1st reboot.. Reboot the machine and allow it to boot fully to idle.. do a shut down.

if you dont believe it..

Follow the instructions yourself. Except change it to a 0
Then shutdown.. (you may need to reboot 1st) and you'll see that it will go to that screen.. To return to normal change back to a 1

Tried It, But Nope, Didnt work.Even after 5 reboots, and then leaving it for 20 mins, then shutting down. Still get that shitty "Its is now safe to turn off your computer" Screen.

Nah, its an old P3 that I put together myself.

I'm over it now, ha ha. If I shut down and then hold the button in then its all good. It was just annoying me that I had to do that everytime. But I only use it to format other hdd's these days anyway.

Would be good if anyone has any other idea's just incase it happens again on another pc.
