    What kind of computer is this? If it is an HP you need to hold in on the power button for 6 seconds for it to shut off. It may be OK after you re-start your computer. If not, post back here and we will try to help further.

    Usually disableing the fast shutdown in msconfig\general tab\advanced and turning off shutdown sounds will resolve this problem.

    [edit]
    if you do not find fast shutdown in msconfig then you haven't downloaded the patch from M$ update.

    Hello deedee2,
    you want to shut off shutdown sounds.
    search the shutdown sound file in the this directory. and delete it
    c:\windows\media
    and give reply.
