Hey all, I am new to the forums and have been using Vista for about 5 months (seems like 50 years ).
Anyway, this may have been answered previously or I may be in the wrong forum and for this, I apologize now.
Here is my problem: Vista Home Premium will not shut down. It just sits there with the circle circling and the words << shutting down >>. It can go on forever if you let it. It also happens when you restart. It wasn't doing this about a week ago and I know I can do a restore.........BUT..........I had a hard drive crash (actually 3>>>thanks Dell) and own a Bible Database Software Program. It contains about 2000 books and resources that I use and I just got done re-loading all if it (took about 5 days and am still not finished). If I do a restore, I will have to start over again.
I am just wondering if anyone else has experience with this problem. I am not going to pay $59 to email Microsoft .
I just have to press the button and then the next time I turn this thing on, I get the message about Windows experienced an unexpected shutdown, or something like that. I get a button about letting microsoft find a solution and that sucker ran for over 3 hours and never did anything else.
I am frustrated and I would appreciate any help anyone can provide me. Thanks in advance and I hope and pray to hear from some of you wonderful people soon.
