I am running a Dell 8500 with win 7 desktop and everytime I shut it down or restart it I get a screen that says waiting for XXX program(s) to close, and then I have to hit Force restart or Force shut down, this started about a week ago, anyone have any ideas? Thanks

1. Hold Winkey+R

2. Type msconfig hit Enter

3. Select Start Up tab and uncheck everything except AV

4. Restart machine.

Guilty. there were only two items checked in the start up tab on msconfig, SAS and MSC, I unchecked SAS and restarted and it does the same thing, Force restart. I also ran autoruns and under the boot execute there is nothing.

http://www.mscsoftware.com/ Is this the MSC you refer to above? If it is why not disable it at startup also?

Can you post a pic of your processes in Task Manager and your Non MS Services in msconfig.

You can use the Snipping tool in your Accessories folder --- start menu --- accessories.

When prompted just click one corner of your Task Man. and drag it to the opposite corner untill you have a complete pic.

Then Save As "your pic name here.png/jpg".

Find where you saved it to (which folder you saved it in) and upload to Photobucket.

Hermitt, your link to whs's tutorial is great, but I still do not understand how photobucket works. There is no folder with my name on it or "New Album", I am signed in to photobucket. Can you explain it better? I know I am stupid.

I ran chkdsk c:/r thinking it might fix the problem, it did replace several bad clusters but did not help this problem. Maybe I am just too old to be doing this stuff.

I bet your not too old. Start all over again. If you have an account for Photobucket as you say you are part way there. Your missing a step or just not following a step. Take time to read everything.

I finally got the folder and named it task manager, but how do I get the task manager into that folder?

1. Create your account at http://photobucket.com/ - real easy
2. Use the folder with your name on it or create a subfolder (recommended). You do that on the left side where it says "New Album" > Save
3.Go to "Upload Images and Videos", somewhere in the middle. Now click on "Choose Files". This will most likely bring up your "Pictures" folder (but you can select another folder). Double click on the file you want to upload. After a few seconds you will see it. Now single click on your picture. On top of the picture you will see “Resize”. The best size to pick is 640X480.
4. If you want to post this picture directly on the Forum, click on IMG Code (last link), then right click on that and COPY. If you only want to post the link to the picture, click on Direct link, then right click and COPY. Then you got it in your clipboard (from where you Paste).
5. Now you can paste this into your posting. If you chose IMG, the picture will only show up AFTER you posted. In the posting you will only see the link. If you chose "Direct link", it will just be a link.

Start with step three.

When I click on Public Folders it says unresponsive, also when I try to resize I cannot.
