Windows is shutting down screen takes a long 20 minutes

I have an old Windows XP Pro SP1 machine that is having a problem shutting down. In know that XP takes longer to shut down than to startup, but 20 minutes is a little excessive. It always does shut down (eventually), but it stays on that "Windows is shutting down..." screen for about 20 minutes.

"It could be anything from system performance to driver issues. Just have a look at the Windows XP Shutdown trouble shooter --> http://aumhadotorg/win5/a/shtdwnxp.htm

Also Make sure that your XP is Patched with this update Patch"

Upgrade the Windows XP to Service Pack 3. The service pack has performance and security improvements that may help you computer run more smoother. Run a virus scan and MRT tool as an added precaution.
