I would recommend you to boot your system and safe mode and do a system restore...To open your computer and safe mode hit the F8 button on your keyboad when the computer is booting up..click safe mode..and then once you get to safe mode its going to give you an option to restore your computer to another day..after the restore is finish, you should be able to use the computer without any problems...

Thinkpad hungup on shutting down


Pull the AC plug, remove battery. You may want to do a System clean-up. I assume you have Windows 7? Use two freeware programs to assist you. 1, CCLEANER: http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/ This freeware program will clean the junk from your machine, in the TOOLS section, select STARTUP, disable ALL unnecessary startup programs, this will speedup starts, shutdowns and running. 2, MALWAREBYTES: http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/ In the install UNCHECK the TRIAL PRO version, you want the freeware version, run a FULL scan, delete ALL results, reboot. Here are more tips to speedup Windows 7: http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/10things/10-ways-to-speed-up-windows-7/3332
