Vista not shutting down
I shut down and it sits on the screen saying "shutting down" forever.
This started happening, I think, after I installed Grand Theft Auto San Andreas. I dealt with it until I beat the game, then uninstalled the game, but this problem is still happening.
I had two network drivers in device manager that had an exclamation point next to them and it said that they're not working properly. I uninstalled both of those and the problem is still happening.
When I shut down, there's no applications running in task manager. There's nothing on my task bar.
I looked at ntbtlog.txt and it has a huge list of different things. About a thousand or more. A few hundred say "Did not load driver".
I have no idea what to do. I don't want to go into windows and start deleting all the files that ntbtlog said were not loaded.
This wouldn't be quite so annoying if I didn't have to hold the power button on my computer for 58 million millennia before it finally turns the computer off.

You could try using a registry script to automatically shut down. That may work. You can find the reg code online somewhere.

I have an old Intel 2ghz P4 system that XP can't shut down, even after a fresh install, but Windows 2000 or older can shut it down. I never figured out what the problem was. MS support also gave up.
