    do you have network connected to the PC at all via a LAN connection or a USB connected wireless adapter

    boot the PC into safemode - tap F8 after switching on
    see if it shuts down OK from safe mode

    run task manager - Control + Alt + Del
    see if anything is running when you try an close down

    it may be a driver issue and then we need to run msconfig and turn off startups and see what maybe causing the issue
