computer won't shut off

My Dell dimension computer with XP won't shut off using the start menu. I have to hold the power button on the tower to get it to shut down. How do I get it to shut down using the start menu on the screen?

I have a couple nifty icons that shutdown and reboot for me.. Easy to do..
Work good when things are stuck

Right-click on the desktop
New - shortcut
Properties = %windir%\System32\Shutdown.exe -s -t 00
Next - Name = Shutdown

Same thing for Reboot except Properties
%windir%\System32\Shutdown.exe -r -t 00
