My Computer Will Not Shut Down Correctly, How Can I Fix It?


Visitors: 162

Most people who use the Windows operating system experience times where their computer will not shut down correctly. Sometimes it freezes while it is shutting down, and in other cases, people experiences that instead of their PC shutting down, it restarts.

There are many causes of why some computer does not shut down correctly. However, here are some of the common solutions available to fix it.

The first is the applications opened and are running in the background. With the number of applications you install, there is a chance that your PC will not shut down correctly because some applications hang up or refuse to turn off. To solve this problem, you can try forcing the application to turn off before you shut down your computer. This normally solves the problem and will let your PC shut down correctly.

You can also alter the startup menu of your computer in order to prevent applications that you do not even need to run in the background, which may cause your computer to not shut down properly.

The system registry can also be the reason for your PC to not shut down properly. For this, you may want to try reinstalling your Windows operating system or you can try patching your Windows operating system to get rid of the bugs.

There are also software programs that can automatically fix the system registry for you. These programs are available for download in the internet and can easily fix your system registry, which will make your computer run faster and also correct any corrupt system registry entries that may cause your computer to not shut down properly.

These are the common causes of why your PC will not shut down correctly. By remembering these things, you can be sure that you will be able to get your PC to turn off properly and avoid damaging the hard drive and other components of your PC as a result of improperly shutting down your PC.
