When ever i shut down my pc, its so slow, it takes about 1 - 2 hours shutting down, i have no threats\malware, thats causing it.

Its windows xp Professional
768MB of RAM
3 Year old PC

And its never done it before.

Anyone know how to fix this problem?

You can try this Microsoft Profile Cleanup, maybe it will help in your situation.
Also if you haven't done so a defrag may be good as well as checking msconfig for unnecessary background processes. Just my two cents :thumbsup:

Zone Alarm can cause long shutdowns if it installed
if you have try disabling it and use another firewall
