Does anyone have a problem with Windows 2000 not shuting down when NCF
is installed? I forget the version that is installed, but it was
updated about a week ago. When I installed NCF from the file, it would
shutdown fine, but when I updated it, it would hang on closing
networking connections during the shutdown and never shutdown.

This only happens when connected to a network, either LAN or dial-up.
If you just login using workstation only, you can shut it down fine.

Windows 2000 SP4 with all post patches
IE6SP1 with all post patches
NCF (as noted above)
Novell Client 4.83 sp2

The only way to power off the laptop is to hold the power button.
