Windows XP will not shut down

Jump to solution

I have been running Windows XP SP2 for servral months and it has been working fine. Last week I shut down the VM and during the shut down process XP froze. It has been installing teh 3rd of 3 updates for close to a week. The only thing the machine will respond to is suspend, which puts me right where I left off when I resume the machine session. Any ideas on how to fix this? I have attached a screen shot.

Fusion menubar > Virtual Machine > hold down the option (alt) key and select "Reset" (to restart) or "Power off" (to just shutdown) - these are analogous to hitting the restart button on your PC case / unplugging the power cord, respectively (i.e. this is not the same as "Restart Guest" and "Shutdown guest")
