Bezee,
And if you close the programs yourself, before shutting down your computer?

Close all open programs, then shutdown.

System still hang?

One more favor: When you get ready to shutdown, Close all programs, then WIN | type TASK MANAGER | ENTER | APPLICATIONS tab Are any programs shown there in the applications tab? WIN = key with microsoft logo on top.

Let's try a System Restore point from before the problem appeared.

RESTORE TO A PREVIOUS SYSTEM RESTORE POINT
1) WIN | type SYSTEM RESTORE | ENTER | NEXT
| Choose a different restore point radio button | NEXT
2) Show more restore pointscheckbox (lower left)
3) Highlight the desired restore point
4) Scan for affected programs(lower right)make a note of affected programs
5) CLOSE | NEXT | FINISH


WIN = key with the wavy Microsoft flag on top.
============================================

You have restore points unless you've used one of those super-duper clean your computer, etc programs.
Win 7 automatically generates them.

Just restored to my oldest restore point (3 Days ago) and still having the same issue. Thinking back, I probably had this issue before then but i thought nothing of it and assumed it would fix itself.
