When you try to shut down a computer running Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional with Adaptec Easy CD Creator 4.0 or earlier installed, you may find that the computer does not shut down properly.


This behavior can occur because Adaptec Easy CD Creator version 4.0 does not deal with shutdown and hibernation issues in Windows 2000.


To resolve this behavior, upgrade to Adaptec Easy CD Creator version 4.02.


This behavior is by design.
