Configuring Windows Do Not Shut Down – Windows 7

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -

I wasn’t expecting to have “Configuring Windows Do Not Shut Down” displayed on my PC screen for hours.

This was after updating Windows and rebooting. Now, it wouldn’t start up because I shut down my PC even if it said I shouldn’t do so. Restoring to a date before the updates finally brought back my PC to life but it also produced error messages.

A few programs like the Google Chrome Updater are not working. I also cannot hear HDMI sound.

I have attached a picture to show the error message I got when I tried to restore my PC to a later date.

System Restore

System Restore does not appear to be functioning correctly on this system. A Volume Shadow Copy Service component encountered an unexpected error. Check the Application event log for more information. (0x80042302) System Restore can help fix problems that might be making your computer run slowly or stop responding.

System Restore does not affect any of your documents, pictures, or other personal data. Recently installed programs and drivers might be uninstalled. Is this process reversible? Back Next Cancel This is the log from TSG SysInfo: Tech Support Guy System Info Utility version

Configuring Windows Do Not Shut Down – Windows 7



Please try to Check whether Volume Shadow Copy Service, System Restore Service is started and Set to Automatic

1. Type Services.msc in Start Menu search box and press enter.
2. Make sure that the Volume Shadow Copy Service is Running and set on Automatic.
3. If the Status of System Restore Service is not Started, Start it. Also set it on Automatic.
4. restart your computer.

For Google Chrome

Try to save your Chrome data by following

Application DataGoogleChromeUser DataDefault

and then download a fresh chrome and re install it.

For HDMI sound

Maybe your sound card is conflicting with ATI Radeon HD 5450 sound settings.

Go to the Control Panel and then Sound, select your Sound Card in there instead of other.


Hope these steps will help you


Good Luck
