Having problems with your Dell OptiPlex GX260 PC Desktop ?

Dell Optiplex GX260 will not shut down.

\015 I have a Dell Optiplex GX260 that will not shut down. When I select Shut Down from the start menu the computer freezes and I have to shut it off by pushing the button. The problem seems to be worsening, and the computer will not recognize new USB connections (my mouse which has been plugged into the USB before the problem still works). Also, I tried to uninstall some software, but the Add/Remove programs utility does not pull up the list of installed programs. Thanks!\015
