When exiting Windows 7 why won't my computer shut down completely?

By drex.pincock ·
I have a dual boot system, Windows XP and Windows 7 on two separate hard drives. Everthing was great for the first few days. After one of the Windows updates my computer would no longer shut down when exiting Windows 7. XP is still functioning normally. I tried restoring to an early version without success. I have tried stopping different process and stopping any unnecessary startup programs. Still have the problem. Can anyone help?

Seems to be a common problem in Windows 7 . I have a new build pc that refuses to fully power off every other shutdown. Windows shuts down but the power and fans stay on as if it is about to do a restart, only solution is to hold power button for a few secs. Pc works fine in XP on a separate hard drive always shutting down and no problems. tried every possible solution on the web I can find and still can't solve it, I'm using the 64 bit version of Windows 7 and think maybe it's some sort of ACPI bug???
