THAT OLD CHESTNUT....PC WILL NOT SHUT DOWN!

Hi,
It started about 2 weeks ago & now it's just getting annoying. My PC freezes on the blue 'Windows is shutting down' desktop & will not go any further. I have to turn it off via the power button.

OS WinXP.

I do all the usual spy/virus/defrag/clean up tasks etc weekly so I know it's not anything too nasty.

It boots up without any probs.

Any ideas chaps?

Cheers.
J

Hi & thanks. I tried the PCStats adjustments to REGEDIT & worked first time.

Many thanks.
