I think my frustration paid off!  ;D Mum says I'm like a 'Dog with a bone' when there's a PC problem...

It's not only in the Blue Soleil programme folder but in Prefetch - is that correct?

I've found the culprit - at last! After much frustration and testing....  Toilet Paper.gif

It's the BTNt service for Bluetooth (Blue Soleil)- I'm setting to manual because I only need it to occasionally connect my Cell Phone!

Quote from 4wd
I prefer doing offline disc/partition imaging.

What does that mean 'offline'?

258
That looks good 4wd - better than built in System Restore on XP I presume?

Please perform regular maintenance on the Wife 1.0 program as the history database is not guaranteed to import into Wife 2.0!

Now that we're going to be without a specific complaints section, I figured I'd better post this warning here.
Be careful with this!
I tried to replace the Wife 1.0 module with the Mistress module and the program gave me Distress instead.

It must be a Windows issue as I did a Diagnostic Start up with only essential processes running and it still won't shutdown! Except in Safe Mode?

Time for reinstall as I can't restore an Image either.... :huh:

Thanks for that!  :Thmbsup:

Back to square one!  :mad:

Not the Dock and the shutdown problem has started up after 3 days of being okay... I've tested all processes from a-d again and it seems to have picked a different one!  :down:

« on: June 17, 2010, 01:57 AM »
It is, but I have a sneaking suspicion it's my Docks (Beta version) which I have now rolled back to a more stable one...

Will be testing that theory today! ;)

It's working now, but I can't pinpoint culprit yet! Gradually shutting off processes before shutdown - it was somewhere between a-d....

My No.1 reason for using QTTabbar is the Double Click on Desktop to open!

noticed this option here, the "Clear Pagefile at Shutdown". could you have run any optimiser/boosters that might have turned this on?

When this option is enabled, it causes the system pagefile to be cleared upon clean shutdown. This takes considerable time of the Operating System to flush-out the pagefile, thus causing the slow shutdown. You may disable ClearPageFileAtShutdown option to improve shutdown times. But the pagefile.sys will be intact and accessible via other Operating System, in case or dual or multi-boot.

Only CCleaner - no Page File options there...

is your WinXP patched up to SP3 and all? try using this tool to shutdown in the meantime, Quick ShutDown.
