Shut down problems

Well, I don't know what's happening but After I leave Windows 7 on for a while I think it happens after I play a game, were my Memory usage is at 90% of (2 gigs of ram). I could not be playing the game for 1 hour plus and if I try to shut down it just sits there doing nothing, eventually it decides to shut down.

I do have an error in my Action center "An issue with the Customer Experience Improvement Program (CEIP) client in Windows 7 beta is causing Explorer and some MSI-based installers to stop working properly."

I have don't what its told me to do, but still has the shut down problem, this is really the only issue I have with Win 7

Okey dokey.
Here you go mate, its a issue with the SQM client in windows. MS have released a fix. Have you used windows update? If not then do so, im told the fix is in there.
If not then there is a fix you can do yourself.

  1. Open a Command Prompt as Administrator
  2. Type reg delete HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SQMClient\Windows\DisabledSessions /va /f and press enter.
  3. That’s it, no further action is necessary

Hope that helps

Does it happen after you play a particular game, or after any game?
