  • Window 7 will not reboot.

    So after having the problems with the version of windows I had I started over and installed windows 7 pro 64 bit. But now whenever there is an update to a program and it says that it needs to reboot it will not. It will get to the shutdown screen and the icon keeps spinning away but nothing happens. I can leave it for 45 minutes and come back and it is still spinning away. The only way out of it is to kill the computer and reboot. I can reboot to safe mode and it will reboot fine from there so I am guessing it is something running that will not let it reboot I just do not know what. Any ideas?

    I understand it will not reboot when it says it needs to, but are you also saying it will not reboot from a cold start?

    You say it will reboot into Safe Mode from an apparent cold start, but have you not tried a normal boot from a cold start?

    You definitely have some process running in the background preventing it from rebooting. I had a desktop that would never shut down or go into sleep mode because of this problem. I never did find out what it was.

    Go to: Run and type in msconfig. Select the Services tab. Check the box that says Hide all Microsoft Services. Then click on Disable All. Save and exit and try and reboot.

      Well that did it. I disabled all those not microsoft services and it rebooted fine. Now will just have to find which one is causing the hang up.

        Yep. Start each service individually and re-boot until you find it.

          Update:

          There is a service called Intel Smart Connect Tech Agent. In that service there is a an option Keep Data Fresh. I turned that off and it seems to reboot okay. With it turned on it would hang on reboot. I still have not turned the rest of the services on yet so do not know if others are causing a problem. But that is one causing a problem.
