I just installed InstantCD/DVD 6.5 and now Windows 2000 takes forever to shut down. Saves settings and then just hangs at the blue screen for minutes.

I already unchecked a few things in "Startup" and uninstalled Easy CD Creator and Direct CD (no help).

Uninstalled InstantCD - Windows shutsdown normally.
Reinstalled - same problem. Please e-mail me directly

Thanks

Sounds like a big bug. Email them to report this!

BG,
As John stated this above, you need to email some bug reports to the company, and it might not be a bad idea to also email microsoft. If you remember, Windows 98 had a million issues with shutdowns, and they issued patches for this issue. I don't think this is a problem for Win2000 however, it's more than likely an issue with just the software, especially since after you removed it everything is fine. Does Win2K offer you the option of right clicking the program and "run-as" option? If it does, you may want to experiment with this as a quick resolution.

I e-mailed the company that makes InstantCD. I only have the demo, so not sure if they will help me (they asked for a serial no.). Windows 2000 does not have compatabiliy mode like XP.

I didn't mention that I also have a conflict with the Primary IDE Channel. I posted this on other forums and have not got much help
(this happened much earlier):

Windows 2000 was working OK, but Ultra DMA could not be enabled
(at the time I did not know that SP2 fixes this problem & DMA works).
So I downloaded the latest VIA 4-in-1 drivers, uninstalled the older ones, installed the update and then things got even worse.

An SCSI/RAID driver was installed (was NOT installed before). This is causing a conflict with the Primary IDE Channel. I “uninstalled” it and it still shows in the Device Manager (now with a yellow exclamation mark).

This is what it says in Primary IDE Channel, under the Device Status tab:

This device cannot find enough free resources that it can use. (Code 12). If you want to use this device, you will need to disable one of the other devices on this system.

Both the Primary IDE Channel and the SCSI/RAID controller are on IRQ 14. Uninstalling the SCSI driver doesn’t get rid of it, it comes
back as the computer boots up. Installing SP2 didn’t help either (would if I could get rid of SCSI).

Motherboard is ECS K7VMA, with AMD Duron 800 - Works great on other computer with same hardware and software (UDMA enabeled) - very fast computer (this one has a W.D. 40GB, 7200RPM, ATA100)

Seagate 20GB, 7200RPM, ATA100 - Mobo supports ATA100 and has on board audio and video
