Solved ! Shutdown Hangs With Vista

2008-09-02, 18:34 PM

I thought I'd share this with the board. A few days days after a clean install of Vista Ultimate I began having serious delays in shutting down, and sometimes not being able to shutdown at all without hitting the power switch. A search through the Microsoft Discussion Groups led to a KB article 945533, titled When you try to shut down a Windows Vista-based computer on which a Bluetooth device is installed, the computer stops responding.


There is a hotfix available which when applied to my computer immediately resolved the problem. You have to apply to receive the hotfix, but it literally took less than a minute for the email response with the link to the hotfix. If any of you are experiencing this problem you may want to give this a try.
