It really does not matter whether or not it is a shut down issue.
You would be correct that it is not a shut down issue specifically but the real problem is that the install does not work.
I have mannually removed ZA as per the instructions on the message board.
This still did not work and if the installation of 7.0 worked fine with the same exact software then how come there would only be a problem with 8.0?
This does not make sense and I would think that it might have something to do with 8.0?
It appears that other people are having the same issues and are reverting back to 7.0.
This software usually is very good but it appears that some of the updates that have been rolled out lately there have been some issues with the inital version updates.
I have tried a manual removal and it did not work.
<hr>It did not work what? I am trying to explain you that shutdown issue are not resolved by clean removal.BUT general issue of slowdown of the system that are not connected with the issue some users are having with XP can be resolved by resetting the settings or by removing manually ZA.
Which of the problems do you have?
If you want to resolve them, open a new thread and I will try to help you.
