    If the system will not complete normal is
    generally caused by a resource not releasing memory.
    One way to trouble shoot this is using msconfig, go to
    the startup tab, uncheck (at your disgression) various
    APPs from loading at startup. Do a shutdown. If shutdown
    completes, the culprit is one of the apps you unchecked.
    Continue procedure until cause is isolated.

    Alternatively, you could run sfc /scannow from a command prompt
    or Boot from Windows CD to repair the OS, to see if this
    resolves the issue.
