Hi, I had the same problem, for a workaround this is what I did. I made a new shutdown shortcut. Now when I click on it the pc shutsdown fine. I actually put mine on the taskbar. Here's how I did it...
XP Users: 1. Right click the Desktop and select New /Shortcut. 2. A screen will appear asking you for a Command Line. Here's what you put in that box: For Shutdown: Shutdown -s -t 0 For Restart: Shutdown -r -t 0 For Log Off: Shutdown -l -t 0
After you've decided which of the above options to use, click the Next button and give the shortcut an appropriate name. Final Notes: 1. Now that you have the nifty little shutdown shortcut on your desktop, you may want to drag it to your taskbar for easier access (and less chance of accidental clickage). 2. I didn't like the nasty looking icon that XP gave my shortcut (it was too Win3.1 for my taste), so I changed it.
