Error Shutting Down or Restarting - Please help


D

Daniel

I have an issue that I need assistance with. Anytime I try to shutdown or
restart my system using the following procedure:
1) Start Menu
2) Shut Down
3) Choosing Shut Down or Restart and Pressing OK Button
my system will close all runnig programs but fails to shutdown or reboot.
When I check the System Event Log I get the following error:

Product: Windows Operating System
ID: 1073
Source: USER32
Version: 5.2
Symbolic Name: WARNING_EW_SHUTDOWN_CANCELLED
Message: The attempt by user %2 to restart/shutdown computer %1 failed

The only way I can get the system to turn off is by either pressing and
holding the power button, using another computer and third party tool to
perform a remote shutdown, or use psshutdown.exe to perform a shutdown or
reboot.

Can someone please assist with advice on how to fix this issue?
