From the last few days I am facing this problem. When I shut down my Win 2000 Server(SP4) at the end of the day the end program-exlorer.exe dialog box comes up twice and it shuts down only after I click on the 2 end now buttons. Both end program dialog boxes are same and comes one after another. The whole shut down process takes around 5 minutes. It also takes a minute to show me the shut down dialog box after clicking on the shut down option. then the 2 end program dialog boxes comes up with end now buttons. I did not find anyother error message in event viewer. Please advise One more problem was there few days back...It was taking minutes to delete even small files/folders in windows explorer...but it is ok now. Any advice on this would be highly appreciated. Thanks

    hello (-: What are you using this for and how many separate programs load at startup? As this is a server(?) is it firewalled and protected? Does it use networked assets like printers, scanners, databases... ? Are you saying that, with ALL proper precautions against outside interference in place and being a completely clean, up to date setup that was working fast and fine until a few days ago? and nothing attached to it that you dont know is working as it should? Are you networked as you shut down? Give me more... (-:

    Hello Mark This server is in a small office. This is in a work group. This is used for sharing internet, files and printers. We generally shut this down after all computers are off. Only few programs started during start up including MSN messenger. Everything was fine few days before. Now one more symptom is ... it takes hours during disk cleanup, chkdsk and never completes. Thanks

    If disk cleanup and/or CHKDSK do not complete, you are probably looking at a disk problem. Schedule a CHKDSK before you leave for the night, then restart the machine for it to run. Let it go overnight to see if it goes to completion. If it completes, look in your event viewer for errors that may have been found. If there are errors, run it again the next night, until you get no errors. If you still get errors after a few runs. Get a good backup of he drive(s)and get a new drive in there and the data moved over to it. Steve//
