Try this: Open Task Manager (press Ctrl+Alt+Del) and click on the Processes tab.
Leave it open and do a shutdown. Watch Task Manager and see if any particular process uses a lot of the CPU.
Post back with what you see.

I think the User Profile Hive Cleanup utility may help, give it a try.

Edit: One fix for Add/Remove problems is to re-register some DLLs as follows:
Following from DaverSlinger Post #13, modified for clarity.
Re-register the library files in Internet Explorer
These files are all in the Windows\system32 directory of your boot drive.
1. Close all instances of Internet Explorer.
2. Open a Command prompt window by clicking Start then Run, typing cmd and pressing Enter.
3. Type regsvr32 URLMON.dll and press Enter.
4. When you receive the "DllRegisterServer and DllInstall succeeded" message, click OK.
5. Repeat for each of the following files:
Reset Internet Explorer (IE) Settings
1. Click Start then Run, type notepad and click OK.
2. Copy and Paste the red lines to the Notepad window:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
3. Click File, and then click Save.
4. In the Save in box, click Desktop.
5. In the File name box, type fix01.reg.
6. In the Save as type box, click All Files, and then click Save.
7. Click File then click Exit.
8. On the desktop, double-click fix01.reg, and then click Yes to add the information to the registry.
9. Click OK to confirm that the information in the fix01.reg file has been added to the registry.
10. Restart the computer.
11. Delete fix01.reg from the Desktop when done.
