Locking Up On Shutdown

Hi have just installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit and I have been experiencing lockups on shutdown for the past week even after a fresh install. So far I have not had a bluescreen. It seems I only have problems during shutdown. And event viewer shows nothing since I have to force shutdown otherwise It will just stay on the shutting down screen which is frozen

I tried a fresh install and still have the same problem. I think it might be a driver issue and I am pretty sure all of my drivers are up to date.

If you think it is a driver then you can try running driver verifier and see if it catches anything
