I know what I'm going to say is just so general, But change your windows, or maybe switch to 7?

I've faced worse problems, I'm not changing my precious XP for that reason

No I didn't mean 'let's change the windows for a single problem', But that is windows XP, it would be better if it's be changed every 6 months.

I am assuming you didn't mess around in the boot order menus and the issue is just a program or process that will not allow the systems to terminate. Try a clean boot to look for the process/program...Link alternately here is a decent shutdown troubleshooting guide Link.

An important thing to remember for Windows XP btw that is important.

All support for Windows XP ends in April of 2014 (that's about 1 year and 4 months from now). At that time Windows XP will not receive security updates and Windows XP will eventually (and quickly) fall into a permanently insecure status and will not be feasible to run on any machine. So if you're not thinking about upgrading to a newer version of Windows 7, the time to consider doing so is right around the corner.

I had read somewhere you can create a batch file to run the shutdown command. It would be another thing to add to your desktop, but it could work. Honestly I'd ask someone else here about writing the batch file in notepad. It's not complicated but others here know more than I do about computers.

A batch file is just a series of command lines run one after the other.
All that's really needed to make one to shut down the computer is copy-past the command Neo used before into a text file with .bat as an extension.

Or for the very lazy:

Thanks for all the replies guys, but I still can't fix this problem.
