    hi,

    when you restart the pc or turn it off but you have left some programs opened, a screen appears mentioning these programs...

    I have seen one program supposed to be called keyboard

    try going to start ,and type in keyboard ,see if it point to a app/program called keyboard .
    it could just be that you have a good Function Keyboard with all the function buttons ,for mail /internet search ,ect ect that has software installed for all its functions ,and its just slow shutting doe ,i don't know if there is such a log to find out any info on the programs that take awhile to shutdown.

    i use a microsft keyboard and when i type keyboard into start i shows software for me to setup the keyboard

    hi, thanks for your answer

    I do not have a functional keyboard, is is just a normal microsoft keyboard

    i was thinking i had a keylogger or something lol but now that you say you have it too, it makes me feel relieved.

    thanks!
