Windows XP suddenly shutdowns slowly after installing new hardware

I've been able to shut down my Windows XP x64 SP2 quite nicely in about 10-15 seconds, but after a "sweet" hardware failure and getting my CPU, motherboard and graphics card replaced and having reinstalled the OS, shutting down takes about 2 minutes. After clicking Turn Off, my computer seemingly does nothing for said amount of minutes and then finally switches to the usual Logging Off -> Turning off windows routine which takes about 15 seconds. During these 2 minutes I can still browse my files and open/use some programs, but it will eventually mention something about rundll.exe? or another system file not being able to run, obviously due to Windows trying to shut down.
