Joystick works but freezes PC on shut down

  sec 15:08 07 Apr 2003

I use a microsoft sidewinder joystick, that works fine, USB connected and seems configured OK. after gameplay, if the joystick is still connected to PC , then shut down is frozen, requiring restart or switch off at the plug. No viruses detected, and I really have no idea why this happens. Does anyone know why this happens? XP system 2100 processor, new-ish 2002.
