I have that problem too. I even tried to download a patch for it.

I think the only way to fix it is to reformat your hard drive or switch operating systems.

Well, it's probably caused by a program that you have running while trying to shut down -- and that program doesn't want to exit itself.

Try this -- press ctrl+alt+del ONCE to get your Close Program dialog box. Then close each thing one at a time (you may have to click End Task up to 3 times per program). Shut down everything EXCEPT


Once all of that is done try to shut down again. Through trial and error you can figure out the manic program.


The girl he had dragged along to the pub with him had grown to loathe him dearly over the last hour, and it would probably have been a great satisfaction to her to know that in a minute and a half or so he would suddenly evaporate into a whiff of hydrogen, ozone, and carbon monoxide. However, when the moment came she would be too busy evaporating herself to notice it.

-Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Hit it with a rock while screaming at it. Always seems to work for me.

You can disable the fast shutdown option in your SETTINGS>SYSTEM.
It could help, it did for me.
