RE: Vista Ultimate "shutting down" freezes
Found that its the USB wireless adapter which stops it shutting down- unplug
it and it shuts down OK.
Anyone any ideas about how to avoid unplugging each time before shutdown?

Re: Vista Not a setup question. Post in general.
Why not post this in the Vista general group? It's not a setup question.
