    Problems with restart


    Hello,
    When I go to the restart button in charms,
    it shuts down only Skype then loops forever. Anyone else having this looping problem? I have to shut the system down by manually powering off.

    Are you talking about Skype App ? If so, They have updates for several Apps in the last few days including Skype. Just open the store App and look on the top right corner, It'll show updates for Apps, click on it and it'll take you to Apps update page.

    No, I'm talking about restarting W8. Skype is fully updated. In charms, when I hit the restart button, I hear the Skype shutdown sound, then the system loops in restart mode... the dotted circele goes around and around... even for an hour. I have to power off manually.

    Let me add this: The charms power off shuts the system down. Just restart loops.

    If you have skype set to start when windows loads, try turning that off and see what happens, seems weird you'd be getting a skype sound when restarting.

    The Skype sound is the normal sound when it shuts down. Then the restart indication is left on the screen and the little circular dots keep moving to no avail.
