Windows XP No Longer Shuts Down Completely

It goes through it and then hangs with my HD access light being on and my computer doesn't turn off. This occured after I installed LiteStep, which is now completely uninstalled, I don't know how to fix it, and I don't have a system restore point to go back to, any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

T-Bone:confused:

How long in the shutdown sequence do you get? Do you see the Windows shutting down screen? And if you harddrive light never turns off when shutting down, there could be a physical damage to your harddrive....

You probably have CD creator installed.

Go to the Creative website and download the latest drivers & instructions for use with XP and your machine will shut down fine after that.

Check for any error messages in the event log that correlate with your shut down time, or any others that may pertain to your problem, like disk errors or warnings, and post back.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
