That is a strange problem.
I will help you to create a shortcut on your desktop for that icon, whenever you need to shutdown your computer, just click that shortcut on the icon.
Right click on the Desktop.
Left click on New > Shortcut.
In the Type the location of the item: textbox enter
The -s parameter is used to shut down the computer.
The following two parameters can be used with -s:
-f Forces running applications to close without warning.
-t xx Set timeout for shutdown to xx seconds.
The following command would shut down instantly.
%windir%\System32\shutdown.exe -s -f -t 00
Click the Next > button.
In the Type a name for this shortcut: textbox enter
Shutdown My Computer (or some other name of your choice)
