Windows 7: Shutdown hangs?

Shutdown hangs?

Well I'm having trouble with automatically shutting down and also just shutting down manually. Sometimes it annoys me since these hangs are INCONSISTENT. Now I did do a little researching on how to fix this but most of the fix suggested by others seems to be using clean boot and little by little see what software/antivirus seem to be the problem. But that suggestion seems to be obsolete since my shutdown hangs are abnormal. This happened way back ago, I just decided to ask about since this hang I got today pissed me off...(left computer to download and to shutdown at a certain time but ended up just hanging and going back to login screen for like 6 hours past the shutdown time.)

I was notified by Windows saying something about unexpected shutdown. Not a technical person so I hope the error message it gave in the txt file helps.
