    "archive damaged" is it ok to delete? o_O

    i have a "small" problem in turning off the computer...
    i cant turn it off using the 'Turn off' buttons on the Start MEnu! :(

    when i scanned my system with nod , i expected a lot of files locked,
    but i saw 2 archives damaged.

    C:\Program Files\Openoffice.org 2.0\program\python-core-2.3.4\lib\test\testtar.tar

    C:\Documents and Settings\pc\Local Settings\Temp\yms50.tmp >>CAB>>\sunkist.bmp

    what do they mean? what kinds of files are they? can i delete them? please help, else i need to pull my plug every time. :oops:

    Hi figsch, welcome to Wilders.

    Neither file has anything whatsoever to do with your shutdown issue. The 1st file is to do with Open Office 2.0 The 2nd file is a picture - Bitmap

    You can try the following to check for missing or damaged Windows files:

    * From the Start menu, select Run.
    * In the Open field, type sfc /scannow (Note: There is a space between sfc and /scannow)
    * Select the OK button.
    * Follow the prompts throughout the System File Checker process.
    * Reboot the computer when System File Checker completes.

    Failing the above I would suggest repairing Windows as described in the following link: http://www.informationweek.com/showArticle.jhtml?articleID=189400897

    Cheers :D
