Hey everyone, I got a problem that's not a HUGE problem but it is very annoying. I am running XP Pro 64-bit on my machine and everytime I click start -> shut down the desktop freezes before the shut down menu appears! This happens 100% everytime. The reason I say it's not a HUGE deal is because I can still ctrl+alt+del and get the system to restart or shut down, whatever I need. I can also reclaim my desktop by killing and restarting the explorer.exe process I definitely want to get this fixed though so if anyone has ANY ideas that'd be GREAT. Essentially it seems like the explorer process is freezing once I click shut down. TIA Everyone!
