Windows 7: newly installed win 7 ult. won't shut down

24 Oct 2014   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit
newly installed win 7 ult. won't shut down

I reinstalled my windows 7 ultimate on a "new" computer and it works fine, only thing is it won't shut down.
It logs off, and then 10 seconds into shutdown the little circle stops spinning and just stays there for ever. When I do a restart there's nothing wrong.
I hope someone has a bright idea 'cause I can't figure this one out
