I've done that now, ran slowly on restart, but probably because it was finalising the updates or something. I'll see how it runs tomorrow and let you know.

The computer started up a little slowly this morning.

As you have had a lot of updates I would recommend that you now defragment the drive and see if that gives an improvement

Sorry for taking so long to get back to you. Sometimes, if I switch it off it just says "Saving your settings" it just stays on that and won't switch off. Otherwise its perfect.

Is that a regular occurrence or just sometimes ?

Sometimes, but regular. I mean, probably 4 times out of 5 it switches off ok, but 1 out of 5 not. Then sometimes when it goes into hibernation it won't "wake up" when you click the keyboard/mouse.

That sounds as though a programme is not closing properly.  Does this happen after you run a specific programme ?
