Wow never seen that before
First download all windows updates then it will probably ask you to restart hit restart when prompted
If that doesn't fix it ring/email asus or take it down to the place you bought it

Yeah thats my last resort but honestly where has my SHUT DOWN button gone?

 

On the start menu there is no shut down button.

 

Is there anywhere else on Win 7 where i can shut down the PC?

All the files are uptodate but it seems like I need to do some fresh install soon. :( Too much hassle.

 

The laptop ran out of international warranty by the way.

Try pressing control alt delete and checking the bottom right hand corner. There should be one there.

control-alt-delete, should be a button in the bottom right to reboot/shutdown/etc.
