Just a though. Use msconfig and see what you have running under start up. You might have something starting there for shutting down that is causing this problem. If you have downloaded anything new it might installed itself in your start up and causing start up and shut down problems. Another option would be chkdsk /r. Check M/S site for proper use of chkdsk /r. (notice the space between k and the /).

To sharpie: If it has happened only once I wouldn't do any thing serious but it never hurts to look into start ups. A guide is located at the top and bottom of every Bleeping Computer page.
