Question win xp with sp2 freezes during shutdown

I have a laptop that is running windows xp home with service pack 2. The system has a 1.4 Ghz celeron M processor, 512 mb Ram, 80 GB hd. I have installed all of the critical updates from windows and have installed all of the hardware updates as well.

the system intermittently locks up during shutdown and has dont this for some time now. I have been to the windows fixes and have done all that they suggested and still have this intermittent shut down problem.

I have run spysweeper and have scanned for viruses via my norton antivirus. I ran ccleaner and cleaned out all of my temp internet files, cookies , history and cache. I have even run the disk defrag.

I appreciate any and all help.

thanks

It sounds like its not shutting a program properly. I know there is a problem with hibernation and shutting down but not sure what it is. Next time it hangs during shutdown try to open your task manager alt control delete to open it and check applications and running processes and see if that will give you any clues.
