    Shutdown Problems with Vista on a HP 6715b laptop

    I've had this dual core 2ghz processor with 2gb of ram
    vista business for 6 weeks now and I've had shutdown problems

    Yes I have looked at the frequent post from the msvp regularly posted

    Shortly after I first set up in early Jan, windows update was mammoth,
    c 280mb incl an office 2007 sp1

    Shortly afterwards I uninstalled both greasmonkey audio and realplayer
    and finally had normal shutdown

    By the way I changed from 'restart to memory dump' to facilitate a
    'clean' shutdown as well

    Well the dreaded shutdown bug has returned
    I've gone back a couple of retore points to no effect
    I've uninstalled more software, eventually I'll have nothing but ms
    software at this rate, but to no effect
    I've changed the log to 'verbose' and will report back any messages
    I've run the malicious ms tool with no items found
    I've updated all drivers from the hp site

    Any ideas on how to move forward with this bug?

    Have you tried shutdown with a new user profile? If it is fast, you may have
    profile corruption.
