    Try this: move the mouse pointer to the lower left corner of the screen. You should then see the Windows 8 icon, the four panel window.

    Next, right click your mouse and you should get a list of options. Very near the bottom of the list you should see "Shut down or sign out".

    Put the mouse pointer on that entry and you should then see four options, one of them should be "Shut down". Just click on that, it is a normal shutdown that does not perform the Win 8 fast start feature, which I know you have disabled now, but try this anyway.

    Also, are you using any settings in the BIOS that are not default settings? Certain ones might cause your problem.

    Another possible solution. Downgrade to W7 and wait for W9 ;)

    Do you use RamDisk that saves the content to the HDD? Does Windows clear the pagefile at shutdown? Are there any Windows Updates pending install?

    Maybe I've got the point, sfc /scannow have discovered some problems but it wasn't able to fix it.
    Also, I've tried to run sfc in safe mode but I've got the same problem (It wasn't able to restore some files)
    I noticed also that on my windows\winsxs\temp there was a bunch of files inside the PendingDelete and PendingRename folders, which I've deleted by hand too...

    I guess I should investigate on the sfc error.

    Fixed by downgrading bios at v. 2.60
