Here's a link to some shutdown troubleshooting suggestions: http://aumha.org/win5/a/shtdwnxp.htm

While an occasional disruptive shutdown generally won't hurt your system - repeatedly doing it will cause further errors to crop up. If the shutdown troubleshooter above doesn't fix the issue, you may have to resort to a repair of Windows XP

If you've got IE7 installed: http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=917964
