Do you have any command windows open at the time you are trying to shut down the computer? Especially any command windows on which you are running a program that has not yet completed (for instance, you have a file open for editing or something like that)? If none of this makes sense to you, it is safe to hit end now to get rid of that window, so go ahead and do it, but I will do more research on this problem.
