Hi I have a problem on my old pc that my son uses every time I shutdown it just hangs on the blue shutting down screen. After a while i have to hold in the power button to turn it off and its a real pain. Any help would be very helpfull.

This is a Windows 7 support forum,not XP, but ...

Download and install User Profile Hive Cleanup Service, see if that helps the shutdown. If not, try opening Task Manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del) and look at the Processes tab. See what is running and start ending them one at a time until you find the one that is causing the shutdown to hang. Post back with that info and we'll see what can be done to resolve it.
