Are you saying nothing happens when you select "shutdown" from the start menu?
What version of Windows are you using?

What happens if you press Win+X, then shutdown from there?
Also, does Restart or Hibernate work from the start menu?

If I hit start button and hit shut down the computer light goes orange but the tower light stays on, If I hit window plus w it the same'
the one way it will go off by hitting charms and setting and power

If you are getting the same behavior from the Win+X menu, then it doesn't seem like a Classic Shell problem.
Also, try holding Shift when shutting down from the start menu. It will do a full shutdown instead of the normal hybrid shutdown.

When I hit the shift and start button it takes me to the charms. sometimes the start works and sometimes it doesn't. I have to watch the tower to make sure the light it out. Thank again

No, I meant you press the start button normally, but before you select the Shutdown menu item you hold down Shift.
