Specs: Windows 8, Intel Core i3/ 3GB RAM
Windows 8 does not shut down.
Facing this problem after I attached my friends Seagate 2TB External HDD to my Lenovo Laptop.
After I attached it to my system windows asked to fix the problem with the drive and I ignored that.
After detaching the drive I am unable to shutdown my system.
Selecting the shutdown option does not work nor does the command prompt shutdown.
Also tried to change power options settings to solve the issue but nothing worked.

Press & hold the power button until the system shuts down, restart, tap the F8 key to enter Safe Mode, then run a full virus/malware scan.
