One of the most irritating and sometimes recurring problems in Windows Vista is that it won't shut down no matter how many times you try. It may also start to reboot when you try to turn off the PC. You are in a major fix when such problem arises as the PC won't shut down or restart and your project may be stuck in between. Else, you might see a blue screen without letting you make any progress further with the PC. Below are some of the easy-to-perform methods that resolve the problem. If you face any problem while performing below mentioned steps you can contact Windows Vista Technical Support at their Toll Free No +1-877-452-9201 For US/CA.

Run Antivirus Scan- If the PC seems to be infected with a virus or other malicious software, then run an antivirus scan. Your antivirus should detect and remove all the malicious virus programs in the PC. This should ultimately resolve the shutdown problem caused by a virus.

Driver Update- Install or reinstall Windows Vista-compatible drivers. The latest drivers can be downloaded from different websites including Microsoft. Furthermore, most of the websites including Microsoft provide the list of compatible hardware and software versions.

Repair Corrupted/Unremoved Registry-You need to download and run 'registry cleaner program' on your PC. It is easier and more comfortable way to clean the pending or corrupt registry entries.

Run a Clean Boot:

This should only be followed if your PC is connected to a network, which under its policy settings may stop you from performing the clean boot step. Below are the steps that should resolve the problem:

•    Ensure your PC is powered on and booted up
•    Log onto the PC using administrator privileges
•    Click on 'Start', a menu will appear
•    In the 'Start Search' box, key in 'msconfig.exe' and hit 'Enter' on the keyboard
•  If there is a prompt for entering administration password, key in the password, or click on 'Continue'
•    When a window appears, click on the 'General' tab, from the options click on 'Selective Startup' option and then uncheck the 'Load Startup Items' option
•    On the 'Services' tab, check 'Hide All Microsoft Services' and then click on 'Disable all'
•    Click on 'OK' and then click on 'Restart'

Despite performing abovementioned steps, if your Vista keeps giving shutdown problems, then contact a Microsoft-certified professional support that identifies the actual issue and resolve it.
