Hey everyone,
Im my PC has been running reasonably well for the last year or so. However yesterday, I turned the computer off by pushing the button and windows was doing all its shut down procedure, so I left the computer... I come back the next day to find that Windows was stuck on the "Windows is shutting down" screen. And I have tried turning it off 3 other times today, however it keeps getting stuck on that screen. Now I am forced to turn it off by the plug, which I am not too sure of.

The computer does seem to be working a tad slower than usual too, but I could just be imagining it.

Now Im not too sure whether my computer has a virus or... is there something wrong with the system.

Could anyone help?

Use the Windows Error checking utility (Check Disk), with the options to scan the disk surface for errors, and attempt recovery of data and repair the disk.
Open "My Computer"
Right-click on the drive that you wish to check (C: drive/your System drive) > Properties > Tools > and in the "Error checking" section, click on "Check now".
Place a tick in both boxes > Start.
A message will notify you that a restart is necessary: Click OK, and close all windows.
Re-start the computer. The disk will be checked when the system boots.
This test will take some time to run and at times may appear stalled but just let it run.
When the disk check is complete, the system will re-start automatically and load Windows.
If any errors were found, it may be prudent to repeat the process.

How do things look after doing that?
