Possible driver problem. Check all your hardware has upto date and correct drivers installed.

Some piece of hardware is probably not responding correctly to the shut down request.

Before you go down this route see the next post. There may be a solution there.

flexinores, FWIW, Windows seems to have been plagued with shutdown problems of one sort or another since day 1. I use a standalone shutdown proggie (for convenience) called 'Slawdog' (said to work on all versions). Get it free @:

among other places. Works good and I drag/dropped the icon into my quick launch so it'd be handy for use.
BTW, FWIW, I'd uncheck 'restart'. Seems to me that'd prevent shutdown by any means.
