Does your machine refuse to shutoff at shutdown?

This may or may not work depending on whether or not your system supports APMS. Start regedit, and make your way to [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop] and in the right pane look for the key PowerOffActive. Change the value to 1.

Try UPH Clean from Microsoft (if it's not already given in one of the links):

Note that it is unsuitable if it is a 64 bit machine.

I've found it fixes most XP shutdown issues.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
