    Question Errors on Shut Down

    Hello All,
    I have a HP Pavilion DV8110us Laptop and lately when I go to shut down the computer before the desktop goes away i get random errors that say certain things will not shut down. One particular one just says that the name of the program that wont shut down is a bunch of boxes.
    It always is just random programs that dont wont to end. If i hit end now it works alright but Im wondering if its somehting i can fix easy enough?

    Well normally the programs seems to freeze which windows will terminate it automatically eventually, like 15 secs I think.

    Dunno if there is a general fix for this though.

    I have found this little tool useful when shutting down the PC.

    The User Profile Hive Cleanup service helps to ensure user sessions are completely terminated when a user logs off. System processes and applications occasionally maintain connections to registry keys in the user profile after a user logs off. In those cases the user session is prevented from completely ending. This can result in problems when using Roaming User Profiles in a server environment or when using locked profiles as implemented through the Shared Computer Toolkit for Windows XP.

    On Windows 2000 you can benefit from this service if the application event log shows event id 1000 where the message text indicates that the profile is not unloading and that the error is "Access is denied". On Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 either event ids 1517 and 1524 indicate the same profile unload problem.

    To accomplish this the service monitors for logged off users that still have registry hives loaded. When that happens the service determines which application have handles opened to the hives and releases them. It logs the application name and what registry keys were left open. After this the system finishes unloading the profile.
