Windows 7: Not shutting down properly.

Windows 7 Ultimate
Not shutting down properly.

I'm loving Windows 7, starting to use it as my main OS. I understand it's a beta, but for some reason it's not shutting down properly. I have created a .batch file figuring that it's the drivers, but it still doesn't seem to shutdown. I put the shutdown script in Group Policy. I can't seem to get it to shutdown properly.

Here is the script I am using:

echo "Killing ati . . ."
TASKKILL /IM ATI2evxx.exe /T /F
echo "Done. Killing Synaptics"
TASKKILL /IM SynTPHelper.exe /T /F
TASKKILL /IM SynTEnh.exe /T /F
echo "Done."
I do have some external drives (mouse and sd card) so I'll get back to you in a few.

What (if any) Antivirus software do you use?

I had the exact same issue when I was running Norton Internet Security 2009, i have since changed my antivirus to Avast! which has not caused me any issues at all

Just a thought.

You might wan to read Kapersky Tech Preview for Win7 in this same forum, it highlights some service issues
but it has been a bit of a pain to configure it to allow/disallow certain services

Might be worth a read.

Thanks! I've decided to uninstall Kaspersky and go with Avast. Do I have to run it in compability mode?

No, you can install it straight off, no need to use compatability of any sort

Version 4.8 is the latest & it works great.

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

You could also try ccleaner to see if that fixes any issues you might have.

I've had a shutdown issue since I purchased my Emachines laptop and have never been able to resolve my shutdown issue. My system acts like it will shutdown and then comes back on. From what I am reading here, it may be my power supply or the fact that I have Norton 2009 trial edition (19 days left). I am going to put Avast on and see if that does anything. I've always hated Norton and had trouble unstalling McAfee years ago. Thanks and I'll post if this helps me.
