    Restart and shutdown do not function from START button

    If I select restart or shutdown from the log in screen, they work. Both also work from safe mode with networking.

    Nothing obvious in the event log.

    Any suggestions for the next step?

    Accidentally made it so whenever I log in, it shutdowns instantly

    How can I log processes/sevices that are causing slow shutdown?


    Hi Ed.....

    I took a look at the event viewer as suggested and all it showed was that the event log was stopped and that I'd started a shutdown.

    Any other suggestions would be welcome.

    Thanks
