there are 4 user accounts on my computer, on my user account however, every time I log off or shut down, the applications currently running display an end now window. The applications are closing however and the computer is logging off. This only hapens on my user acount and not the other user accounts on the computer.
Have you tried looking at the processes that are running under your profile, compared to those on another profile? There might be something that is preventing the application from stopping in goodly time.
Yh sounds like a duff user account to me, Make your self a new account and just copy all your docs etc over to the new one and see how it goes.
just dont delete the one your using now just incase there is something you might forget to transfer over.
