    help! computer doesn\'t like turning off

    windows xp. everytime I go to shut down I get 'program (outlook) not responding...end now?' And that little bar that goes across, but it won't end unless I press enter. This isn't a big deal except I get one for everytime I open outlook, so by the end of the day I have to press enter 15 times in order to get the computer to shut off. Is there a way to get rid of this, or am I stuck pressing enter a lot? TIA

    i dont know of a fox for that but if you hold the power button down for 5 seconds the PC will power off right there and then. If you dont have any important documents open its worth a try

    Outlook has more bugs than a cheap motel. Troll around the Microsoft web site for patches. Ya might even try a Google search for the problem. Sometimes that will find fixes that Redmond doesn't even know about yet. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif
