I can use use computer (have downloaded Micorsoft Office 2010) and accessed internet. When I go through normal process of shutdown it sits at blue screen saying Windows XP shutting down and I have to force shutdown with on/of button at the back of keyboard.

Have you done a disk cleanup or a disk defragment to increases the speed of the data acess so it responds and shuts down faster?

Computer hasnt been used and has only been connected to Internet today. Is it anything to do with the fact I have downgraded from Vista Business to Windows XP. It was done legitimately with Acer recovery disks and then Micro office 2010 was installed.

True but when the computer installs windows or anything for that matter onto a hard drive it doesn't care where it puts it on the hard drive so it's actually not in the fastes and quickest data access points meaning that it basically has drawn a huge road map to get to your data and close it down.
