    Win ME

    Hello, I'm trying to help a friend who has a problem with starting/shuting down WinME. When he shuts down the computer it just won't shut down all the way, what I mean by that once it's at the point where it would actually be shut down, it always starts to reboot and restarts. I do use "Shut down" and not "Restart" and have no idea what is going on. Could someone please help me, I'd apreciate it very much. Thanks, Tira

    You might also want to take a look here and here. The "ShutMeDown Registry Patch" was created for Windows NT and is referenced in another MS Knowledge Base article (I don't have that KB#), but has worked for "some" ME users. As always, backup your registry BEFORE making any changes.
