Very slow shutdown

  bluto1 22:06 30 Dec 07

On an earlier attempt it took over 16 minutes to switch off.
I checked msconfig, no problems there, ran cCleaner, A squared, AdAware,SpyBot and Avast4 and apart from a MRU object the PC was clear.

It has been a little slow in the past but nothing to worry about. The only other webpages I've been on were click here after installing Paragon Hard Disc Manager.
Running XP Home SP2.
Any ideas please?

Stu06, I really wanted to avoid System Restore this time, and re Windows Updates loading thats a no no. I leave auto download disabled.

woodchip, any one of your links should work, thank you.

Thanks for help guys, I'll wait before saying Resolved. Thanks.
