When I try to shut down it just keeps running with message displaying logging off. It is a Dell running windows 7. It works ok just will not log off.

Did Dell install windows 7? If you are sure your system is clean, no Malware or spyware, the check on their website to see if there are any updates especially firmware.

if it is still under warranty then call their customer support.

If it is the first time you should be able to pull the plug and then restart the computer.. If this is a laptop you also need to remove the battery and pull the plug.

If this continues to be a problem then reinstalling the operating system will likely be necessary.

Also if you have a memory card from a camera plugged in sometimes that will cause this.

from the command prompt you can type one of the follow or you can make a batch file for each command

shutdown -r this restarts you pc


shutdown -s this will shuts down your pc


shutdown -l this will logoff your pc


shutdown -t xx the xx are second that you want the pc to wait till shutdown/restart/logoff


shutdown -i gives you a dialog box to fill in what function you want to use


shutdown -a aborts the previous shutdown command....very handy



shutdown -t 0 -r -f

use this whenever I want to force an immediate reboot




if you need to know more about this Google "

windows logoff command"

I have used several of these commands to reboot, log off and shut down and several pcs at work

Do you have some sort of firewall in the antivirus? Which one are you using?
