Do u zone alarm installed? Please remove it n try?I've been having this problem for a while now. This only happens once in a wile. When I go to shutdown my computer, it doesn't shut off.
When it does all the saving my settings, and what not, it just sitts there, and doesn't shut off the computer. I figured it was once of my running software, such as my zonealarm pro, but when I shut it manuely, it still wasn't shutting off properly. It would go through the process, but when its suppose to shut off, it just sitts there. I checked all my processes, they were ok. I asked a friend of mine, and he said that it could be a windows xp shut down problem.
