The different links you have sent me to are all very familiar looking to me. I have tried I believe, everything short of reinstalling windows. From the information I gathered, the machine is an older E-machine, that until a few months ago worked fine. I wish I was informed a bit sooner about this problem as trying to run back system restore points would be a bit easier. During that time, the computer has been left on continiously and during the course of my scans I found a couple of trojans. These have been removed, the registry cleaned, and while the overall preformance of the computer is much improved, the shutdowm issue is still there. It would sure be nice if there was a piece of software that would show which driver/file was holding things up.
