Computer doesnt shut down properly

May 10, 2009 at 06:11:54
Specs: Windows XP, Pentium 4
When I shut down the system, a message appears 'End Program - WMS Idle'. Thereafter another message comes that the program is not responding. When I press 'End Now', the machine shuts down, otherwise it does not.

Windows give programs a certain length of time to close for Shutdown. If any do not, then you get that.
