Ok, I've narrowed it down and I'm now almost certain the problem is down to one of the microsoft services that boot on or after start up; now what I need to know is, with this information is there a shortcut to determining the problem or will I have to manually turn on each service to find the problem - and there are about 100 of them. I also noticed that just before the shut down Windows Explorer reports a problem and tries to restart

Are you certain it's a Microsoft Service causing this problem? The difficulty here is that by disabling some of these services, you may prevent the notebook booting.
Have you tested all the other non-Microsoft Services first? You can do this by holding down the Windows key, pressing R, typing in msconfig and hitting enter, selecting the Services tab, put a tick in the box 'Hide All Microsoft Services' then click 'Disable All' and click Apply to save the change - then try re-enabling one Service at a time, rebooting and see if the issue occurs.

I've run start up with all third party services running and all non essential windows services disabled, and there was no problem, I also managed to get this - it's a boot log showing which services run up onto the point that Windows crashes, I can't really make sense of it unless it's in chronological order
"Loaded driver \SystemRoot\system32\DRIVERS\vwifimp.sys" seems to be the last thing to run
