    One services not closing correctly when log off/shut down

    I have a service/software that does not end correctly when i log off or shut down. I get the 'End Now' box pop up. I f end it by pressing the 'End Now' button it does work. But i am trying to pinpoint what it is that is causing it.

    On the End Now box the offending application/software is just called 'Sample'

    I have no idea what this is and have tried certain MSCONFIG stuff but with no luck. I just wondered if anyone have any ideas on the 'Sample@ error?

    Kyle are you using 'hopster' firewall and proxy bypass software?

    ok have you looked in services.msc to see if there is a service called sample?

    if so double click the service 'sample' and click the dependencies tab. see what it relies on.

    also do a search for sample.exe

    Re: One services not closing correctly when log off/shut down

    Found this, willl et you all know.


    Hello, I had exactly the same problem and believe me you arent the only one...
    HOWEVER, I found two solutions, the first of which fixed my computer.
    You also may have been expeiriencing annoying slow shutdowns, I certaintly was.

    This sample.exe issue is usually caused after the Intel PROset has been installed, this is supposed to be a program made for configuring Intel PRO wireless network cards and I believe that most people install it while troubleshooting a problem in their wireless network.
    To stop sample.exe "End Program" messages on logoff/shutdown and improve system performance, the intelPRO set must be installed.

    Click start --> Control Panel --> Add/Remove Programs

    and run the uninstallation of the Intel PROset.

    If you are 100% sure that you do not have the Intel PROset installed then chances are you have a virus named either W32.Nimda.E@mm or W32.Nimda.A@mm either way they are quite dangerous and have the ability to allow access to your files from a hackers computer and degrade your computers performance dramatically.
