I am out of ideas, let me opt out and open this question to other experts. remote assistance may be needed.if no expert opts in, we can continue.
To switch off the computer you have to direct the on screen mouse arrow to the top right hand corner and click it .Five symbols appear down the right of the screen. The bottom one of these is 'Settings' Click on this and one of the options which appears is 'Power'. Click on this and one of the options is 'Shut Down'. Click on this and a statement comes up to say I may lose data along with the option to 'Shut Down Anyway'. Click on this and nothing happens.Also a further problem - the small Vodaphone window will not close.
Nothing happens. The hourglass appears for a few seconds but the picture and the Vodaphone window stay on the screen.
Sorry, I should have been more explicit. Nothing happens after I click on Command Prompt (Admin) except the hourglass appears briefly
Yes, the black window comes up and displays C:\users\stuart k> (stuart k is me by the way)
Yes, it opens and displays the message as before C\users\stuart k> and a cursor which suggests it is waiting for further input.
When I got the black window up and typed in the commands you suggested it kept telling me that I was not authorised to do this. However, I tried again to switch off the computer by the little on - off switch above the top left hand corner of the keyboard. This had not been working during the period that the problem had been around but this time it worked and the computer switched off. When I switched it on again it took a long time to boot up but when it did it worked normally. I have switched it on and off a few more times and all seems ok. Thanks for your help.
