    Why don't you pull the plug on it, start again, get into Safe Made and do a standard Maintenance. Ain't no expert but never (touches head and says "touch wood') got into serious probs.

    You may need to give details of your PC, as it could be hardware specific, but have a look here first:

    http://support.microsoft.com/default...;EN-US;q311806

    This is relevant if you have the Roxio Easy CD Creator 5.0 or Direct CD 5.0 program installed on your computer.

    There is a ton of information on the web if you search www.google.co.nz using xp not shutting down as the search phrase, but you have tried that?
