    Shutdown problem with Windows 8 Release Preview

    I've installed the Windows 8 version available on Dreamspark Premium. Although the experience is very stable and satisfying in my opinion, there is one major problem for me: No matter what I try, the system does not want to shut down by on board commands. It worked for the first three days, but then windows did not want to shut down properly. I have to do a hardware shutdown by removing the power source. Can anyone there to solve my issue if so then it is greatly appreciated.

    Hello friend,


    I have the solution for your problem just do as i say...............

    This may be the problem of the virus or the malware affected your computer.
    So try to install a new Anti-virus software in your computer like Nod32,
    Kaspersky etc,...........

    You can download all these software's from 'www.filehippo.com'.
    and it is free to install them in your computer.

    Even if it don't work it may the problem of your system software installed
    in your computer. So try to repair your system by inserting the 'Motherboard'
    CD in your computer.

    I hope it will help you.

    Have a nice day.........

    Hi,

    The problem is something that will create a lot of problems in future as the shutdown is not properly done.

    From "METRO" , "Start" page type "Shutdown Settings"
    Click "SETTINGS" on right of the screen.
    Click "Change what the power buttons do" on left of the screen.
    Click "Change settings that are not currently available".
    Scroll to bottom of Dialog box.
    Uncheck the box titled "Turn on fast startup (recommended)."
    Click "Save Changes".
    "Exit" Power Options.

    Try that to solve your problem.

    If the problem still persists, think about a fresh installation of Windows 8.

    Thanks.
