    Shutdown option is not responding in Windows 8 system

    Hi friends can anyone tell me why the windows 8 release preview shutdown button is not working while I am trying to shutdown the machine using the shutdown option? The system stops responding and unnecessarily the machine requires direct power off which can damage the hardware please help to fix it. Thank you

    Sometimes this type of problem occurs because of installing updates.
    And on verifying files system gets hanged because of some virus.So you need
    to scan your system before shuting it down whenever you install updates.

    The problem is happening because of Anti Virus.

    Install any good anti-virus.

    Update it.

    Run full scan.

    Now try to shutdown.

    If the problem is not solved then do forced shutdown.

    Now start your system and check.

    If the problem not solved then insert your windows CD and repair your windows.

    Re: Shutdown option is not responding in Windows 8 system

    Here's that shortcut. It works!

    %windir%\System32\shutdown.exe /s /t 0

    Copy and paste that line into a New Shortcut on your desktop and then use that shortcut to shut down your PC with Windows 8 on it.

    This is a quick solution but a clumsy one , what you also try is a sfc scanning.

    Click Start, in thesearch box type cmd, Right click on cmd, select Run As Administrator,
    Type sfc /scannow and press Enter.let the utility scan and fix errors and in the orocess fix the start/shutdown problem.
    Check wjeather the problem is gone or not.

    Finally format the drive, clean install Windows 8 once more for a solution to the problem. Don't forget to backup necessary files.

    Re: Shutdown option is not responding in Windows 8 system

    Hi Friend,

    I think this is because your computer is affected by virus or malware. So install
    a good, updated and full version antivirus.
    Scan your computer for viruses.
    Clean your computer by deleting all viruses.

    If the problem does not cured then this is
    because your shutdown apllocation has
    been corrupted.
    You must restore your computer to some previous date.

    Hope it will help.
    Thank You ! ! !
