    Computer hung on "Getting Windows Ready". No update should be there.


    I finished updating my Lenovo Thinkpad W510 with the 2nd Tuesday updates and doing some other updates to it. I clicked on the shutdown, and all of a sudden I get the "Getting Windows ready .. Don't turn off your computer" message. Since I just completed the Cumulative Update installation, there should be nothing to update at this point. Also I have Windows Update configured to not to automatically download and install updates. I have no idea what it is trying to do at this point. Can I hard shut it down?

    EDIT: Never mind. After 40 minutes, it finally shut down. I have no idea what it was doing.

    :)

    Enter on keypad " no. + # "

    petrib is correct. It is a shortcut to SIM numbers.

    Numbers on your SIM might not be in the position you think. Just because they appear sorted in alphabetical order in the contacts list doesn't mean that they appear in that same order on the SIM. On the SIM they appear in the order in which you input them,
    unless you delete a number in which case the next one entered takes its place.
