Whenever i want to shutdown my windows xp, i go to start and shutdown and then the screen just remains the same with my desktop in the back, icon, wallpaper and all the good stuff - and if i try to open something, a little dialog box appears saying that windows in shutting down

then after about 5 minutes windows actually starts shutting down and switches screen to the saving settings and the powering off or whatever comes next and then it finally shuts off

Does anyone know what the problem could be and how to fix it??

Have you tried going to "msconfig" under the "start-up" tab and removing any programs from running in the background? Your problem may be a program hanging.
