Restarting Windows 7 Hangs

Windows 7 Professional 64bit

When I try to perform a restart, the computer goes into oblivion. Drive light flickers a bit but I've let it rest over an hour and it didn't restart. Have to press the reset button. Otherwise everything seems OK. I've run deep scans with Malwarebytes and Kaspersky and no warnings - Solutions welcome, thanks for your help - IM
