Specs: Windows XP Pro 32
Hi, I've just installed a new motherboard and, and poer supply on my pc, and at the same time i've also installed a new winxp pro installation.
Everything works fine: The only thing is that when I go to "start > turn off" and choose restart; the PC starts to turn off everything just like normal till the blue microsoft windows screen that says saving profile, and then it stays there. Basicaly the pc wont restart, but it turns off normaly when choosing "turn off" .
What it could be?

Hello Carl29,

Try installing a service called User Profile Hive Cleanup Service from Microsoft.


Certain programs tend to prolong the shutdown process for long periods of time. This has fixed the issue for many people I've helped. If this does not help with your problem, you can simply uninstall it.

It's always nice to have some feed back after things are fixed =)
