    quite often shutdown problems are profiles specific - easy to test create a new blank user - and ten restart 10 times each time logging in with that user. If that is successfull then its most liekly a profile issue with your main user and we can go from there.

    If it still crashes with this one then thats more of a mystery. Could possibly be a sound file cauusing problems - used to get that alot in the first version of xp. Also it could be to do with your pagefile - have you set it to delete upon logoF? Also seen this problem when a hard drive had faulty sectors.

    Are you receiving any errors (BSOD) on shut down or is it just hanging? I've seen a number of similar problems which MS have addressed ont their site.

    I presume you are using windows xp with service pack 2 installed.
