Could you explain exactly what you mean please?

When I click shut down the pc stops at the screen "it is now safe to switch off your computer" and I have to switch off manually

Just in case you have not checked this:
It may well be that you need to enable auto shut down Go into control panel - Admin tools - computer management and click device manager - select view and then select view hidden devices lokk for APM power open it up and then double click the apm device revealed - enable it for use and your problem may be cured.

If it's a Old computer, it may not shut down with windows. Meaning it could be a AT system. Now that's going back a bit. But they are still around

Or right click My Computer>Properties>Hardware>Device Manager.
