    Sometimes its the easy things , it could be a corrupted sound file . Do you have a sound event shut down like exit windows ?

    Perhaps the Elder Geek (no, not me) can help.
    These are oldies but goodies and may do the trick.

    Edit: The info re:APM seems pertinent.

    I've found that that 40% of the time it's part of the userhive not wiriting correctly and the registry process is waiting for the system to timeout before shutting down. This normaly results in the dirty flag not being cleaned and a longer bootup process as well.. You should look at using the USERHIVE CLEANUP Tool at microsoft.. You can read more about what's going on here.

    Also double check to see what spyware / virus software you have, and make sure it's updated.

    Hijackthis is a good start if you know alot about the process and services in your system. If all else fails, you can use the MSCONFIG command to start your computer without any extra frills.

    It's Worse than you Think.
    They are out to get you....
