Windows 2000 Server Not Shutting Down

We have an old Widows 2000 Server that is not shutting down and the only way to power it down is to hold your finger on the power button, which suggests it might be struggling to stop a service or there is a process that it can't stop.

Can anyone tell me how I can investigate what's happening and what I can do to fix it.

Try using Process Explorer from WinInternals to determine what the system is running once you issue the shutdown...
