The link contains a lot of stuff to chew on so I'll take the time to do that before posting again.
Well, I currently can't shut down using either of those methods BUT just discovered that I can shut down using the three-fingered salute (once, not twice) and pressing the "shutdown" button that appears in the "Close Program" window. I've tried that three times now and each time got a normal shutdown. So, does that tell you folks anything about what's going on in there?
Is there some evil code permanently embedded in Windows that automatically triggers a problem whenever things seem to be working OK? Just saying.

Following your suggestion to shut down directly from "safe" I get a final screen that I've never seen before, a black background with large-font words in an orange tint that say "It is now safe to turn off your computer". At that point it appears that the only thing to do is use the tower switch. I've now done that three times with the same result.
So I guess my question back is: Is that the normal "shut down from safe mode" process?
The two helpful links you provided focus primarily on shutdown problems that result either in an unwanted restart or a freeze at the "Windows is shutting down" screen. But please note that my freeze occurs at the screen (the blue backgrounded "Compaq Presario" logo) which (when things worked normally), precedes the "Windows is shutting down" screen. Don't know if that is particularly important, but didn't want to leave that issue silent.

So the lesson perhaps is: When things suddenly seem to go amiss, take a good hard look at what programs are running and if something is there that should not be there, find out why and fix it.
