Are you using the Zone Alarm firewall? If so, first try exiting from it before shutting down. If that doesn't help, then try uninstalling it to see if that helps.
Have you modified any of your services? If so, which ones?
<<Terminal service disabled, yes.>>
Any change in your shutdown issues...now that this has been restarted?

My work office notebook running Win XP 3 PRO and Zone Alarm Firewall too, and it can shut down or restart fine, I'm just clueless on what actually happened.
Suggest you do the following. Cleanup the temporary files, logs, cookies, etc. Use Ccleaner for that. During install of Ccleaner you will be offered the Yahoo Toolbar. UNcheck if not wanted. http://www.ccleaner.com/
If you haven't defragmented since the problems started, do that.
Run chkdsk after cleanup and defragmenting. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315265
Always a good idea to check for malware. Suggest using SAS Free for that.
I use ZA and have XP3. No problems.
Have you considered using HIBERNATE instead of SHUTDOWN? With my setup, computer hibernates in 10 seconds and will completely reload in less than 15 seconds. Using hibernating, unlike standby, is not affected by power failure and is more "greener".
Oh, thanks. Uh, Sygate Personal Firewall seems quite old, is it still safe to use?
The only firewall that I liked with XP was the Sygate Personal Firewall. The writers sold out to another company - so don't get the paid for version. Here's a link to the last freeware version: http://www.321download.com/LastFreeware/pa...onal%20Firewall
