What are the effects when you don't shut down properly? I just a brought a new computer with Vista and I shut down the computer but the thing won’t shut down . So I get tired of waiting and I take the battery cell out because that’s the only way the computer will shut down. What are the effects of doing that and why doesn’t my computer shut down properly when I hit the shut down button? Thank you in Advance, Chemmn P.S. I do the same thing with my desktop that has Window XP.
