Thanks for any advice,

There always was a problem with various programs trying to shut down and
caused this type of a problem. It was supposed have been corrected with XP
but the only thing different is now it happens just occasionally, rather than many times with older versions.
Instead of the normal shutdown I always use a shell shutdown that doesn't
cause the problem. Right click on open area and then 'new' and 'shortcut'.
Create it with "%windir%\system32\shutdown.exe -s -t 01" and then click
this new shortcut to shutdown. Does it shutdown after doing this?
Give it a try and if it works, youll know it is a program .

I tried Safe Mode, but to be honest, I don't think I did it right. (as I've said, I have some serious reading to do!)
I've been surfing along without any problems for so long that this happening caught me by surprise. Ah, the loss of innocence
