When I shutdown the comp I got the message " this application prevents computer from shutdown." Icon of the application does not resemble any of applications on the computer. I can ignore it and just do it but interesting what app is it?

Usually there will be a name of the application. What does the icon look like exactly?

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
