Difficulty shutting PC down

  etlcnes 18:24 22 May 2008

Recently started experiencing odd problem

Running XP Pro SP2 on Dell Dimension 2400 with 2GB RAM

When I try to shut the PC down - Start, Turn off Computer etc the machine shuts down some of the applications but will not shut down completely until I repeat the Start, Turn off Computer process

Then when I switch the machine on it frequently states that machine was not shut down properly and presents usual list of options

Any thoughts appreciated

Have you checked from Task Manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del) what Processes are/may still be running just before you attempt to shut down?
