After the "Event Viewer" is open.
Go through the Application, System and Security Logs.
In the right-pane of the window, you will have various events.
Can you check if you have events with event-no. 1517 or 1524 with source as Userenv at the same time as you shutdown.

Its a service, it will start when you switch on your PC and prevent the cause of those events.

To check whether its started, follow these steps:
Start -> Run.
Type: services.msc.
Press <enter>.
In the right-pane, check if the StartupType ofUser Profile Hive Cleanup service is Automatic.
