Yesterday my pc did not shutdown, the message 'Windows shutting down ' appeared for hours without actually shut down.I had to switch off the pc .
Any ideas please on this problem?
I use XP.

This can happen if a programme is running. Next time do Ctrl-Alt-Delete to bring up the Task Manager to see what is preventing the PC from switching off.

Have you since restarted it and is it OK now?

Op system? XP or Vista?
