Default Computer never shuts down!

Whenever I click turn off, it goes to the "shutting down" screen and stays there for eternity. I have to hold the turning off button on the front of my computer until it turns off! Why is this and how do I fix it?

You may have a corrupted system file, do a CHKDSK.
