Yikes!! Methinks I spoke too soon... (...or acted too late??) Now I cannot shutdown or reboot my PC at all without holding the power button for five seconds - which I always considered to be a last resort. Now it is my only resort.
After installing Slawdog Super Shutdown Classic and reporting that it worked great, it stopped working the very next day. Now that I have uninstalled Slawdog Super Shutdown Classic, I still have to use the power button to shut down my PC.
I checked the registry and only found a few innocuous keys left over from Slawdog, but removing those didn't help either. (Or maybe it will after I reboot - which is the doggone problem!!) Now I'm thinking that Slawdog must have installed - or removed or relocated - a needed DLL, or maybe altered the win.ini file. I'd rather not use System Restore if I can solve this otherwise - too many other changes would be lost, I fear. Wonder if I can view some settings from one of my many backup methods to see if I can find whatever Slawdog changed.
Any ideas out there? Be reasonably kind!
PS - And wasn't I one of the winners of a year's subscription to Buffer Zone a couple of months ago?? Wasn't that me? (Yes....it was......)
(Actually, I had such a hard time getting the copy, and contacting the developer was so extremely difficult (and weird!) that I decided not to even try it..... Oops!)
