    my computer do not turn off if I'm connected to the internet during start up. When I discconnect to the internet and start up my comp, then it will be able to shut down properly later on.
    It will show as "shutting down" (something like that)nd will just stay there forever.
    PCcillin cannot detect any virus infections. I'm suspecting it to be something wrong with a program?

    Hi What OS are you running?

    Have you tried any of the following:

    On Windows XP try running windows defender in case of spyware etc, or try one of the others searchanddestroy etc.

    Check you have all latest updates.

    Make sure you have no programs running when you shut down. try doing control + alt +delete viewing task manager and then seeing if you have any hi mem usuage programs running.

    Has everything closed properly before you shut down?

    Has this problem arisen recently and may you have installed something to cause it.

    Do you still have problems if you disconnect from the internet after startup before you shut it down?

    It may be because your computer crashes when trying to close the network connections. Has this always happened or is it recent?

    Are you on dial-up, or broadband (cable, DSL, etc...)?

    If you can't shutdown when connected to the internet, it sounds like you have something that is using the internet connection while you are connected, and then either stops or unloads itself when you disconnect from the internet.

    I would suggest running a HijackThis scan (can download from TrendMicro website), and post a log file here.
