Widows 7 64 bit halts on log off screen
Posted on 2011-10-12
I am working on a Windows 7 machine that halts on logoff restart or shutdown.
I found a ms hotfix but when I tried to install it I got the message this is not compatible with your machine.
The Windows 7 machine has Service Pack 1 installed
The machine orginally had all the icons on the desktop showing exclamation points. I removed Mcafee and that fixed the problem.
I have since installed ESET Smart Security 5.
This problem described above started some time after Mcafeee was removed but before ESET was installed.
