one click on "shut down" is not shutting down computer.... nothing happens

for that matter, I can't click on start, programs it just goes away.

I can't click on calculator to open it... the menu just goes away

clicking on anything in the Start - Programs just makes menu items go away and I go back to Start-Programs again and it just doesn't work.

any ideas?

Try to open the command prompt (or Windows key + R then type cmd).
In the command prompt type: shutdown -t 5
or: shutdown -r -t 5
-r is to restart
-t is how many seconds it should wait.

But, does this happen every time you try to shutdown?
