I have a PC running Windows 2000 Professional SP3 as a client in a corporate domain.  Problem is that the PC freezes at shutdown when "Closing network connections".  PC has been left overnight in this state, and does not power off.  The unit has to be powered off manually every day.  What could be causing this, and how can it be corrected?
