    Re: How to shutdown properly when I am not able to even selecting the Turn-Off option?

    Hello Guest...

    Well its a very easiest process.

    1. click the Start Button with your mouse, then select the Turn Off menu and finally click the Turn Off icon on the Turn Off computer dialog.

    2. Press Ctrl+Esc key or the Win key and press u two times - the fastest approach.

    3. Get the Shutdown utility from Download.com - it add the shut down shortcuts for you. Else create them yourself using approach 4.

    4. Create a shutdown shortcut on your desktop. Right click on the desktop, choose New Shortcut and type shutdown -s -t 00 in the area where you are asked to specify the location of the program file. Now you can just double click this icon to turn off the computer. The best location would be your quick launch bar.

    5. Press the Win key + R key to open the run window. Type shutdown -s -t 00.

    6. Win+M to minimize all windows and then Alt+F4 to bring the Turn Off computer dialog.

    7. Open Windows Task manager (by right clicking the Windows Task bar or Alt+Ctrl+Del) and choose Shut down from the menu. Useful when the Windows are not responding.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks
    Regards Libin

    -First press Alt+Ctrl+Del key.
    -Now your task manager is open.
    -now use your mouse and go to options then shut down.
    -If you are unable to use your mouse for selecting option then use tab key and up down arrow to select the shut down and press enter.
    It will solve your problem.

    dear friend,

    Seems like you can't access the normal shutdown.

    i.e from the start up menu, you can't access the turn-off option.

    Apart from that, there are several ways by which you can turn-off your computer normally.

    Method 1-

    Right click on the taskbar or press Alt+Ctrl+Del & select the task manager.

    Select the User tab & right click on the user/users option & select Log Off option.

    But before doing that, close all the running process except windows explorer & task manager from process tab & selecting the end process tree option individually by right clicking on each process.

    Confirm it by providing the user password (if any) & wait for some time while the computer turns off itself.

    Method 2-

    Right click on the desktop.

    Select Shortcut option & click on it.

    Type shutdown.exe -s command in the edit field & press enter two times.

    A new shortcut icon will appear on your desktop.

    Right click on the file & click on properties.

    Select any of the icon for the shutdown shortcut key & press apply+OK.

    Now double click on that icon to shutdown your computer.

    Hope these info will help you a lot.

    hi,
    severity of the situation thats happening to you demands immidiet attention.
    Shutting down system by disconnecting power source or some other crude method means somethins gone wrong with the software let alone to what extent it might go.
    Simplest way is to re install the Windows OS from the scratch. Another way is to repair the OS by installing the fresh files removing files those are corrupted for that you need to insert the Windows original CD in the drive and selecting "Repair".
    The third option is to use the strenuous means of editing options using Task manager which might not help if the files are corrupted.

    Thank you.
