    Shutdown Error




      When I try to shutdown, I get the following error message:


      1 programs still need to close:

      (Waiting for) AMD:CCC-AEMCapturingWindow
      This program is preventing Windows from shutting down.


      Catalyst Control Center Version: 2010.0621.2137.36973

      Graphics Chipset: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650


      Is there something in the Options that would allow Windows to shut down? I haven't tried experimenting with the settings, because I'm afraid I would break something.

          Shane do you have any type of back-up software running? Continuous backup programs have caused this type of issue.

            Hi there,

            Also came here from this thread re the "AMD:CC Capturing window" popup. Don't know where that window came from as was not attempting any interaction with the Radeon GUI interface.- unless a hotkey was unintentionally activated or something.

            Unable to get Radeon Settings from the taskbar as all it produces is one big rectangular blurry mess and was reported as an Apphang before cancellation through Task Manager:

            It's an old rig, and runs with the original GPU ~2011, so might be the card. OTOH there might be some kind of timing issue exposed with more recent driver updates.

            An unpleasant effect is a sudden slowing down of the GDI, with mouse & keyboard lag general slow response. A "AMD/CCC "capture window" message box was noted briefly, but it was impossible to react with any processes or their windows at all. The last time it occurred, Windows was luckily restarted without activating the restart/power button, however.

            A possible cause might be as what was mentioned above- system shutdown- or in this case, hibernating during a disk intensive task- likely a Windows Backup or some other maintenance activity. It's hard to see why this would specifically upset the driver processes- but as is always the case, the forum gurus here know best.

            Any suggestions?

            Thanks for reading.

              • Re: Shutdown Error

                Update: It seems the slowdown is most likely to occur on wakeup from hibernation and most likely the result of disk intensive activity.

                Waiting for a minute or so, and the lag has gone- so it might be H/W related, given both of the hiberfil.sys and pagefile.sys files are in excess of 10 GB.

                But the issue with the Radeon settings still remains- it won't start at all now- but will try next reboot. Perhaps an update to the driver- or even AMDCleanupUtility.exe and start over?

                Edit: NVM: The system page file was corrupted - all working now.
