Click Start | Run and type in msconfig.

Click the advanced button at the bottom of the window and inside the new window should be an option 'Disable fast shutdown'. Select it and do a couple of reboots and shut downs and see if that helps.

Do you have a network card installed, as on my laptop that causes log shut down times, but will shut down eventually.

The above should fix tyour problem. If not try ctrl-alt-delete before you shutdown and end task on all but systray and explorer and see if it shutsdown OK
If it does then one of the running programs is causing the problem.

If its a new computer, chances are one of a few things to try:

1. Boot into Safe Mode and Shutdown; if it shuts down, the problem is a software issue.
  A.Try Disabling power management in BIOS and in System Properties
  B.Look for IRQ conflicts
  C. Try Windows Update from Start Menu

**D.If you have AGP card, remove any cards from PCI slot next to it. (This clears up a lot of problems)


If it doesn't shutdown from Safe Mode, one of your devices is causing the problem.

Too many email signature changes to deal with?

Are you constantly being asked to update your organization's email signatures? Do they take up too much of your time? Wouldn't you love to be able to manage all signatures from one central location, easily design them and deploy them quickly to users. Well, you can!

If all else fails this might be the solutions your looking for.

In the Bios
 Pci configuration - If the
 OS = no then change it to OS = yes.    In the POWER MANAGEMENT Disable all WAKE  UP CALLS.
 Give the Video card a IRQ instead of  defult or auto. most video cards should have a set IRQ instead of the defult.

In windows
 make sure all driver's are loaded in its newest version with can be found in
http://windrivers.com.

If you find that your having problems shutting down after you have loaded each program , then load each one by one and restart your computer after each one has been succesfully loaded.
