    I'm using Vista Home Premium. Whenever I attempt to shutdown or logout this
    message appears:

    "The following programs are still running. TaskEng - Task Scheduler Engine
    Process. Task Scheduler is executing shutdown tasks, and stopping tasks that
    are already running."

    I am unable to continue without selecting the option to shutdown or
    something similar. I don' t recall the exact option.

  2. Go to Control Panel (classic) Administrative Tools, then Event Viewer
    and check if Windows is having a hissy fit over some running process
    or application. It may give a clue why it is getting stuck.

    Thanks for the hint Adam. Every Task Scheduler event listed, and there are
    many, is described as "Compatibility module failed to start". Any ideas how
    to fix the problem?
