Why Does My Computer Freeze When Shutting Down/Updating?

So when I go to shut down my computer or just restart it, the entire computer will freeze at the (Windows is Shutting Down) screen with the little spinning circle. Same goes for updates, it will usually go to like 22 or 33% then just freeze for hours.. I have to unplug and turn on (usually, multiple times) to get it to finish or take me to my desktop.


This computer is less than a year old, and here are my specs (if it matters):

Power Supply: OCZ Fatality 750W
OS: Windows 7
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme 6
CPU: Intel Core I7-3770K
Memory: Kingston HyperX 8GB DDR3 1600MHz
Hard Drive: Samsung 840 120GB SSD
Video Card: Gigabyte HD 7950 3GB

I do have additional HHD's for extra storage for music and thing's like that.

  1. I think the OS got corrupted somehow. Do a repair install or clean install of OS, hopefully all will be fine.
