Slow shutdown

Recommended Posts

OK hi I need help.. WHenever I try and shut down my laptop it takes about 15 minutes.. From clicking shut down it takes 5 minutes before a box comes up saying "DDE server window" Now before the shutdown Im pretty sure its not in the processes box or the applications running...


Anyways after I end that task it takes a further 15 minutes to shut down!


I've got my anti virus up to date and also got my spyware etc. sorted..


Are ther any solutions and what the hell do you think DDE server is?? Cheers all

see my answer on NOL


Looks like its some call being made by one of your programs to a/the DDE server - but you don't have one so its locking up
