My PC wont shut down from the start menu on the first try, I have to go through the procedure again and then it shuts down OK. Anyone any idea why this would happen. I have no open programs running.
OS XP Home.

Could be several things:
i.e. your antivirus scanning on shutdown in the background.

This doesnt happen all the time, but mostly. It started about a month ago, what I have found is if the computer is standing idle for say an hour then I have the problem, but if I have just finished using it and then shut down it works OK.
