Default comp will not shut down

recently my laptop will try to shutdown, even restart but at the windows is shutting down bit it freezes at that and the hdd light 9the one that flickers when its working) is constantly on. i have to use the switch to turn it off. i had this prob before and fixed it with a system restore. a few days later it has come back. i dont want to do a system restore again. i dont think i have any crap on my pc but theres a chance of it i spose. any ideas?

hmm some of the tips on there such as getting the latest service pack and updates and stuff are useless as i have them all. i tried checking the sound file and changing the sound scheme with no luck. could it be the vista transformation pack which i have? im also trying to remove that but even after uninstall i still have all the stuff

Yeah it could be that, have you tried removing it in safe mode. Run a virus scan and adware etc in there aswell. Check this aswell
