    It's late, I'm tired and I want to go to bed, but I'll help a little before I fall asleep.


    Right-click start button, click Explore.
    Expand the system drive, usually C: ( Click + in front of drive c: )
    Expand the Windows Folder (Click + in front of Windows)
    Click the System32 folder in the Left side of screen
    On the Right side of screen, look for "Shutdown.exe"
    Right-Click "Shutdown.exe"
    Select "Create Shortcut"
    A new shortcut will appear at the bottom of the right side screen in Windows Explorer.
    Right-Click the new Shortcut to Shutdown.exe
    Move mouse pointer up to "Send to" and wait one second for list to fill in
    Select "Desktop" & click
    Close Windows Explorer
    Find new Shortcut to Shutdown.exe on desktop
    Right-click shortcut, choose "Properties"
    In the box named "Target" change it to read like the red letters:

    C:\Windows\System32\shutdown.exe -s -t 0      <------ that's a zero at the end
    Click OK.

    When you double-click this shortcut, Windows should shut down.

    Windows will still warn you to save any un-saved work in progress
    I hope it works for you. If it doesn't work.. well, I'll be back tomorrow and we can do harder things to fix it.
  2. What happens when you go to start-->shutdown?

    Start-->run-->eventvwr.msc-->system-->any errors (red X's) being logged?
