Win XP OS. When I go to start/turn off computer, the options to turn-off or restart take forever to come up. Once they do come up, I click on "shut-down" and then it takes forever to shut down.

Now the weird part is, I have a green light and kinda like an amber light on my tower. Once it does shut down, I look down at the lights only to see that my green light is still on. I am assuming that the green light is the power light, which tells me that XP is not turning off.

Anyone know what may be happening here ?

From the above link that yuo have mentioned here none of these apply to this problem:

You receive an error message when you shut down or restart the computer I do not receive an error message

• The computer stops responding when you try to shut down or restart the computer It doesn't stop responding, it just takes awhile

• The computer restarts unexpectedly or restarts when you try to shut down the computer I do not have any restarting problems either.
