Every time I boot up my computer it gives me that message saying that Windows was improperly shutdown and asks if I want to boot it up normally or go to safe mode, etc. But I'm shutting it down properly every time... I'm giving it plenty of time to power off it's not like I'm turning it off halfway through. I don't understand why it would be doing this? It isn't a huge problem half the time it just defaults to booting windows normally if I don't choose an option after a certain amount of time (most of the time I just boot the computer up and walk away) but still it's annoying sometimes and I would like to know why it happens.

Check the entries in the Evenet Viewer - there may an entry to tell you what is causing this - may be an application that has trouble shutting down .

Run a CHKDSK on the partition where the OS resides
