What is SysFader?

I have recently been unable to shut down my computer without having to kill off the program SysFader.exe. I can find no info on what this file does but I think it is a Windows file rather than installed by a third party. So does anyone out there know what this program does and how I can disable it? Or what settings I may have changed that recently enabled it?

Cheers

Sysfader is incorporated in Internet Explorer. It is so the menu bar can "fade in" and out.

What version of IE do you have? You may have to reinstall or update.

There is little to no info on sysfader however other people have had problems - especially with IE 5.5

i think the sysfader is the transistion effect for menu and tooltip in win2k. To disable it right click on the desktp and select properties. click on the effects tab and uncheck the first option that is the system effect. This will solve the probelm

kahlean's suggestion didn't solve the problem, so I think I'll try a repair of Internet Explorer (I have 5.5) to see if that does it, as per j_powers' suggestion.

Thanks, guys.

Sorry for the delay in following this one up. I'm beginning to suspect a heat issue, rather than a software problem. I'm getting shutdown hangs with explorer.exe also, and occasional freezes at other times. At the moment the UK is having a bit of a heatwave and Motherboard Monitor has clocked my pc running at around 55 c. It look like I need to open up the case & pull fluff out my fan, or something. Thanks for your suggestions.
