check your running processes before shutting down, maybe there is something in particular that is holding it up..

check the ones that are still running after you start the shutdown process, and list them here in the forums.

You can try these steps.. I hope they help:

1. Disconnect any external devices except the mouse/keyboard/display. Then restart and try to shutdown. If it works, check with one of the devices' drivers.
2. There could be few services which can cause this problem. Launch 'msconfig' from Start->Run. Go to Services Tab and disable any unknown/not required ones. Repeat for Startup Tab.
3. Finally check the registry setting HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\WaitToKillServiceTimeout. Ideally it should not be more than 20000(20 Seconds).

Usually these steps should take care of this issue.

hey..... so like when i go into msconfig. and i take off that the unknowns, it goes into like selective startup. Should i just leave it in that. or just go back to normal.

I put it back on normal. I didnt take anything off from msnconfig. But when I get onto internet sites, my computer is locking up, or just extremly slow. I try to open certain prgrams and it wont open them, then i try to open it again and it says its already opened. I have only one game on my computer. I just built this computer like a week ago!! my computer should be working smoothly. but its absolutly horrible!. My laptop is running alot better then this! I cant dl anything, becuase it locks up. i havent got any programs on this. I have norton antivirus 2005. um..... and it still takes forever to shut down!!!!!!!!!!! I am very frusturated and i have no idea what to do! It just doesnt seem to be running smooth at all! please help!

Don't set it back to normal startup because that enables all start up items listed under msconfig. So if you go back into msconfig you will probably see that all those programs you unchecked are now checked again. Just uncheck the ones you don't want to start up, hit apply, then restart your computer. No need to do anything else.

Well now when I boot up my computer it boots up fine. I can do everything fine on the computer. Works great. When I try to shut it down now. It takes about 5-7 minutes. I dont think it should take this long. I do not have it in diagnostic start up because it starts up fine. Something is holding it back that i dont know about. O YEAH... RIght when I turn my computer on and it boots up in normal mode, i can shut it down and it shuts down in 15 seconds. Its just when I have been on for a while it wont shut down in a fast time. Please help... any suggestions help.

Please don't mention the use of illigeal / copied software (read the rules).

As for your computer, have you done a virus scan, adware scan, and spyware scan?
