the attempt to unknow failed Cannot logoff or shutdown RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    on a windows xp machine the first time I switch on and then either turn off or logoff it works fine however if I logoff and then log back in I can neither turn off or restart, I just gets stuck with an event viewer message:

    Event ID 1073

    Source User32

    The attempt to unknown PCNAME failed

    I tried remove all startup programs, remove antivirus and all related but in vain. Tried also system restore but in vain.
