try starting by keep pressing f5 when in safe mode type msconfig in the run box go to startup tab and remove ticks from boxs try a shut down restart. if it work put one item back at a time and retry, when you find the problem come back hear

did as you suggested all ticks out and put them back one at a time in start up. everything shutsdown and boots up ok, takes about 15 seconds from whenit sayes saving your settings.
What next?

put ticks back one at a time and test startup boot between each. until it will not boot then you have found the problem
