Windows unable to shut down ("Waiting For Shut Down" "This Program is

Google knows nothing of this problem. every time I try to shut down my inspiron 1525, it cannot shut down! it says ""Waiting For Shut Down." "This Program is preventing Windows from shutting down"" force shutdown doesn't do anything. I have to hold the power button to hard shut down
