Make sure it that when you choose Shutdown, its set to Shutdown and not to Restart.

Click Start, Shutdown, then you should see a box says what do you want the computer to do and it gives you a dropdown menu with options to:
Log Off
Shutdown
Restart
Standby
Hibernate

Make sure it's set to Shutdown.

*If that doesn't do it, then press and keep pressed the On/Off Button until you here click off (about 3-4 seconds). Wait a minute then turn it back on. Once its done booting up completely try to shut it down with Start, Shutdown.

The safest thing you can do is to make sure all programs have been closed before shutting down. This alone may solve your problem. Don’t overlook programs running in the system tray. It’s easy to forget these are running as we become so accustomed to seeing their icons on a daily basis. As a general rule, if you don’t see some visible shutdown activity within 1-2 minutes of initiation, something is holding up the process. One readily identifiable sign that some application or process is not terminating properly is the appearance of the "Wait, End Task, or Cancel" dialog box. The program or process listed needs to be examined as to why it isn't terminating properly. Often times a visit to a company website will provide an update to address the issue.

jainscaria, something that may help (?). 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.
