PC Not powering down

#1
Although I shut down Windows (Win 7) the box thingy stays powered up with things whirring away inside and the screen shut down too.

It's too late to do a restore methinks, as this has been going on for a while.

Any ideas?

Anyone?

Hello??

Is it a new system? How long have you owned it?

Try holding the power button down for 10 (or so) seconds until the computer powers down. Then re-start whilst holding F5 and select Safe Mode when prompted.

If that doesnt work try un-plugging it and then restarting as above.

Hope that helps!

Are you sure you are set up to shut down when you click on the button, and not put the PC to sleep?

Click on the arrow to the right of the box you click on to shut down and see what your options are.

But more bollox than a negerian saying he is honest. Why do you mac ******* fall for that nonsense.

Attacks on Mac operating system, thought by many who use the Mac to be virtually immune from hackers, are on the rise, according to a report from Symantec, an anti-virus software vendor.

"Contrary to popular belief, the Macintosh operating system has not always been a safe haven from malicious code," said the report, which was issued on Monday. "It is now clear that the Mac OS is increasingly becoming a target for the malicious activity that is more commonly associated with Microsoft and various Unix-based operating systems."

An Apple spokesman said the Cupertino, California-based company would have no comment on the report.

Many Mac users have long claimed that their platform has been virtually immune to attack -- unlike Microsoft's Windows operating system, which runs on more than 90 percent of the world's personal computers.
