Default PLEASE help me shut down my pc!!

I can't shut down my pc. I am running windows xp pro, and when I go to start\shut down, if I press the shut down or restart buttons, i get no response. It doesnt hang my pc, it just doesn't do anything. The only way I can shut it down, is to go to standby, bring it out of standby, then select shut down from the welcome screen. I can't log off either.

I have searched the websites for windows xp shutdown problems, but there are no solutions for my problem.

Try making sure screensavers and power management is shut down / disabled. Check in the BIOS as well that it is turned off.

Already tried all that as well. This is a complete mystery to me, it just started happening a couple of weeks ago, and I can't figure out why.

perhaps a viral infection?
try a online virusscan (like the one on norton.com or mcafee.com)

or check for any malfunctioning hardware
