Go to power options in control panel and click on the advanced tab and see what exactly the dropdown menu has for the shutdown button.

In XP, when a program running won't shutdown when XP is shutting down, XP appears to be doing nothing...but, if you wait, sometimes as long as 2 minutes, XP will throw up a box that says basically that it's waiting for this program to end.... Are you sure you are completely cleaned of that worm?? Are you waiting long enough before hitting the PWR switch?
