Default windowsme shutdown problem

a relative of mine has windowsme OS and when she goes to start/shutdown , the computer never shutdown like it is supppose to, therefor she must hold power button for 8-10 seconds to power off pc.

my question is: isnt there a patch of some kind that corrected this problem people where having? and if there is a patch where can she download it? or is there another way to fix this?
i know windowsme is junk but she dont wanna upgrade because the pc she is on is only a hp 733mhz/192mb ram...not very much running in background but something is causing this program. also double checked start up folder and found nothing there.
any help with be appreciatted to save some headache's..thanks

I think it may have been something to do with the drivers installed? Or maybe the mode the hard drive is running under, not sure. I've honestly never been able to get windows ME to shutdown properly on ANY PC but my own :/

It may be a driver problem, I have had that same problem a couple of times using Win98 also, I think I fixed the problem, like most, was a swift format

I know XP has a slow shut down using some of Logitechs iTouch software, do know if this carries over to the other MS OS?
