Are not you getting error 6008 about shut down problem? Have you gone through the thread. In that thread people are all reporting about getting the error about shutdown and vlk said its an avast problem and they are working on that problem. Also the error does not happen to everybody its related to avast and windows 7 not other OS (not sure though). You can try uninstalling avast and see if this solves the issue but remember uninstall and reinstall of avast does not solve the issue.
