First, make sure there are no unwanted background processes such as spyware. They can take your system to a crawl speed. Use a tool such as spybot to detect and remove spyware. Next, make sure all of your anti-virus software is up to date and that you have all of the definitions current. Last, make sure you have enough physical memory. Loading a lot of applications can tie up memory and you can end up "swapping" a lot of data to disk and that takes time.

Why do not Acer aspire 5920 laptop shutdown properly It closed all open programs but not turn off system.?

If you are running Windows Vista or Vista SP1, it's because of some logout/shutdown/sleep bugs that are still present in that operating system. If the computer won't turn off after waiting for a while, do a hard shutdown (i.e. hold the power button for a few seconds until the computer turns off). In general this won't have a negative result for your computer, but it would be helpful if Microsoft could get the bugs out of Windows Vista sleep/hibernation/logout.

I am going to assume you are getting an error message something like this:Another user is running Windows Movie Maker on this computer. Please close the other session of Windows Movie Maker before starting Windows Movie Maker again.If you know for sure that another user is not running the application or another session is not in progress, here's what you do to ensure the program (and all running instances) is closed:> Click Ctrl + Alt + Del> Click on Start Task Manager> If you see Windows Movie Maker in the window that opens, click End Task> If you don't see it in that window, open the Processes tab> Find the instance(s) of WMM in the list (look for MOVIEMK.exe)> Click End ProcessThat is how you close any applications running in the background (or other instances of programs). And too, just to be on the safe side, I suggest rebooting, doing a defrag and disk cleanup before opening Windows Movie Maker again.
