    I have Windows XP Home Premium & just yesterday started receiving "Program
    Not Responding" messages on shut down. At first it was ezSP_Px.exe, then this
    morning I also got it and Webroot Spyware not responding. Earlier in the day
    I updated all programs, scanned with Pcillin, Webroot Spyware, & Window
    Washer, ran disk cleanup and disk defragmenter. Before I did all that I
    hadn't been receiving the message. I don't have Symantec products on the
    computer. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

    Windows XP does not come in a 'Premium' edition, but Windows Vista does.
    Could you please check your version of Windows -- is it XP or Vista?

    Can you think of any clues to explain the behavior you are seeing? Any
    recent changes to software or settings? Any registry cleaners or other
    fixit-type software?

    In case you are unsure how to do this (the OP):

    - Find the "Windows" button on your keyboard.
    - Press and hold it down and then press the R key (in other words - press
    both keys at the same time.)
    - In the "Run" window that should appear, type in:

    winver

    And click on the "OK" button.
    - That should bring up a new window. At the top a picture tells you what
    version of Windows uyou have and underneath that - the text provides the
    exact version...

    For example, you could have:
    Windows XP Professional Version 5.1 (Build 2600.xpsp_sp3_gdr.080814-1236 :
    Service Pack 3)
    or
    Windows Vista Ultimate Version 6.0 (Build 6001: Service Pack 1)
    or something totally differet.

    Let us know!

    I have Windows XP Home Edition Version 5.1 (Build
    2600.xpsp_sp3_dgr.080814-1236:Service Pack 3).
    The only changes I made were the updates to Spysweeper. I haven't used any
    registry cleaners or other fixit-type software.
    I followed Spysweeper's instructions to boot into safe mode, uncheck "load
    Spysweeper at startup," reboot, then update to latest version.
    Thanks for your help.

    Sorry, I have XP on one computer and Vista on another so I get confused.
    On the computer in question, I have Windows XP Home Edition Version 5.1
    (Build 2600.xpsp_sp3_gdr.080814-1236: Service Pack). Thanks.

    Similar problem here with tavsvc.exe (Trend Micro AV). Seems to only do it
    after I've been using IE online, and, I immediately disconnect from
    internet. Then, shutdown. Does it in restart too. Usually, if I wait a
    few minutes before shutting down, there's no "not responding" message.
    Guessing the built-in anti-spyware is still sniffing for a few moments after
    IE is closed. Just a guess.
