'computer shutting down' screne remains, have to switch off from mains. This problem started after I installed a firewire adapter card. Windows XP still refuse to shut down even after removal of the card. Please help....

Have you tried system restore?

Yeah, system restore didn't solve the problem. I looked up the error log, in service control manager, it reported :'application management service terminated with the following error: the specified module could not be found Event ID 7000'

click here (with thanks to VOG)

About two thirds of the way down the page you'll come to "PowerDown issues". The suggestions here solved the problem on my PC.
