What OS are you using? What exactly is 'a bit slow' (give it to us in seconds).

Does it help to terminate avast resident protection before shutting down?

Thanks

kanga: please, check your EventLog (don't know how to get there in WinXP).

In EventViewer, check Application log for event from 'UserEnv'. Is it there? What does it say?
