    Just noticed this after a month (Actually, i had my computer on for weeks at a time, so didnt notice till now?)

    But my computer does not seem to want to shut down, nor reboot.

    it'll just go through the shutdown stages, and as soon as it gets to the "Windows is Shutting down", it just stops there (it gets to saving my settings and past that fine).

    I am not sure why. This happens when I reboot or shut down.

    The only thing that has changed on my computer, is me installing Filezilla FTP Server.
    I have also installed a 1TB SATA hard drive

    I did upgrade from 1GB RAM to 2GB RAM, but that was quite before this problem started

    Any ideas?

    I have stopped the Filezilla FTP Service manually.
    I do not have automatic windows updates (i do that manually myself).

    WindowsXP SP3
    2GB RAM
    AMD Athlon XP 4400+
