I run Vista Home Premium, 32-bit, UAC On, user account.  When I want to shut down, I close open application programs, click on the desktop, press Alt-F4, choose Shut down.  Occasionally I get this BSOS Black Screen of Stupidity:



Windows can't shut down because Windows is shutting down?  huhAngry

What I hate is before I can read the screen and decide what I want to do, it does what it wants anyway.  It may as well put that television bullseye with the radar scan line that rotates 360 degrees to count down the seconds.  No message.  I'll just know to wait for it to shut down.  smiley

The well-liked Win7 and hated/despised Win8 seem to make the unloved Vista Win6 and well-liked XP Win5.  So I wondered if there was some kind of ju-ju related to odd vs. even version numbers, and what Microsoft were thinking of to take the risk of jumping over Win9...

If they keep skipping numbers we'll be back to Win95 in no time.  But it may be 128 bit.  smiley
