    there are programs that are hanging on in the system you can bypass this by
    useing
    shutdown.exe -s -t 00 -f
    -s = shutdown
    -r = restart
    -l =logout
    -m \\computer name = remote pc
    -t xx = the amount of time before pc will beging shutdown
    -f = force the apps to shutdown

    you can put this command in a shortcut
    "shutdown.exe -s -t 01 -f"
    w/o ""
    and to shutdown the pc just click the short cut

    Also check for malware and do sfc /scannow from the command prompt to restore any corrupt system files.
