Newly installed software program
Sometimes you might experience that your laptop just refuses to shut down when you click on the shut down button in start-up menu. One reason for this could be a newly installed program on your system. Certain programs at times tend to disable the shut down functionality of your system including anti-spyware software, chat messengers, device drivers or anything else. If this is the case then you are required to uninstall the program and then try shutting down the laptop. This should fix the problem.
Services and processes
Laptop not shutting down is definitely a perplexing situation, however, it can be caused by some services in your system that are not shutting down themselves and as a result the Windows® will also not shut down. Windows® normally closes all programs and services before shutting down the system, but if any service is open or running then it might just not shut down. To resolve this issue go to ‘Services’ in ‘C:/ Drive’ and stop one service each time before trying to shut down your system. By this you can pinpoint the real cause for the issue.
The above methods should help you resolve the shut down problem. Additionally, you can also turn off start up items, uninstall any new software and keep your system updated with online protections that too can sometimes cause such issues.
