Windows 7: 2 questions (stuck at "shut down" and local area connection trouble

2 questions (stuck at "shut down" and local area connection trouble

Hi everyone.
2 questions:

1) My windows 7 stuck at "shutting down". Doesn't matter if i'm restarting or shutting down. If i don't touch it, then i get a BSOD after about 10 minutes.

2) every once in a while i have no connection to the internet. If i troubleshoot, windows says there's a problem with my local area connection, but doesn't fix it. Only if i restart, and then troubleshoot, it resets my "local area connection" and everything's fine. I remember in windows xp i would just press "disable" on the local area connection, and the enter again, and it would restart it automatically. But i have no idea how to reset it manually.

Post up the BSOD file in our Crashes forum for expert analysis: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions - Windows 7 Forums

Until then work through these Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 to establish a Clean Boot, scan the logs for repeat errors to google, utilize System Resources to find solutions to problems. I would also test my hardware to get that out of the way.

Check optional Windows Updates for newer drivers or hotfixes after enabling Automatically get recommended drivers and updates for your hardware. If no newer LAN driver is offered then check the device's Support Downloads webpage for newer or another to try.
