Windows freezes while shutting down RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running a Windows 7 Professional 32-bit on a Dell Vostro laptop. Often times when I start up my computer, I get a message that windows failed to connect to information services; then aero effects are disabled, and the action centre icon is unavailable in the notification area. If I attempt to shut down/ restart, the system freezes, except I forcefully shut it down by pressing and holding the power button. Please, how do I resolve this problem?
