Unbelievably simple solution: Do a Windows update (well, it worked for me).

I have Windows XP. After ages of no problems, suddenly my computer would take about 5-10 minutes to shut down, every time. Virus checker revealed nothing.

When I did a Windows update, the problem disappeared instantly.

For those who are unsure how to do this, click on: Programs/Windows Update; or just google 'Windows Update'.

Key words: computer slow shut down shutdown windows XP PC hang hangs ages
