Top Tips For PC Shutdown Issues

Murphy’s Law states that, “If anything can go wrong, it will”.

While we may call Murphy a pessimist, our interaction with computers, at times, frequently reminds us of this notorious law. Most of the time, we have no clue as to what caused our computer to display error messages on the screen. There are various things that may happen when you encounter a computer error. Sometimes it may refuse to start, refuse to run an application, slow down, shut down without warning and at times, even refuse to shutdown at all.

A majority of PC shutdown issues are caused by EXE file errors, which may occur due to various reasons. To make things simple for us, we need to understand that since each computer has a huge number of exe files, these errors are sometimes unavoidable. The good news is that there are tips which can help us reduce the frequency of these errors and also steps we can take to resolve these problems.

This article will discuss three exe processes, nvsvc32.exe, hpcmpmgr.exe, ccsvchst.exe that may adversely affect the PC shutdown process by slowing it down and in turn, causing frustration for computer users. We will begin by understanding what these different processes are and ways to fix the errors generated from these processes.

1. Nvsvc32.exe: This process is associated with NVIDIA video cards. Although it is an important process, nvsvc32.exe has one reported drawback - on certain machines, it has been known to consume huge amounts of computer resources causing delays in the system shutdown process. If you are one of those unlucky users, then it is recommended that you remove the nvsvc32.exe process from your startup sequence. In case you are not using a NVIDIA video card then you can also opt to disable nvsvc32.exe process.

2. Hpcmpmgr.exe: The Hpcmpmgr.exe process is associated with various HP printers like the Photosmart, Deskjet and All-in-One, and comes preinstalled on most HP computers. Many computer users who use HP printers and scanners complain of frequently experiencing hpcmpmgr.exe shutdown error messages. The error message pops-up during system shutdown, warning users that it is closing all open programs, even when there are no programs open. HP has acknowledged this problem and has prepared a guide to fix this error. You can easily resolve this issue by installing updates for the HP software that you are currently using.

3. Ccsvchst.exe: This process belongs to Norton Internet Security 2007. Many Norton users complain about high CPU usage resulting from the ccvchst.exe process. Other issues reported are slow system startups, as well as the error listed below at system shutdown:

“The instruction at "0x059a2df" referenced memory at 0x059a2df" the memory could not be written. Click OK to terminate the Program.”

You can resolve this issue by running live update. Symantec, the makers of Norton, also provide a fix for this error in the Support section of their website.

Although a computer without any errors is unheard of, with a little knowledge you can enhance your computing experience and say goodbye to PC shutdown related errors. It is also recommended that you use a good registry cleaner tool to maintain a healthy registry and prevent any system shutdown problems due to incorrect registry entries.
