Here is my steps:
1 - press LIVE VIEW SHOOT
2 - Look at your screen. Focus and what ever.
3 - Press Compose
4 - Shoot

when you indicate "shoot", are you using the shutter button or the button on the computer screen? and if so which one, can you do a screen shot?

"when you indicate "shoot", are you using the shutter button or the button on the computer screen?"
The round button on the right of the screen. Live View, Compose and then press the round looking button.

First thanks for all the help so far!
I am beginning to feel dumber than usual. I have tried this on two different computers and get nowhere. Being redundant: start EOS program and get right hand program. Camera is on!
1. click on live LiveView. Its the third choice from the bottom. Get the image on the screen, the mirror on the camera has locked up.
2. The left hand screen is now in LiveView. On the upper right hand side of the LiveView screen click to the right of LiveView button and click on Compose. That changes the menu items below it. So far so good. Are we still on the same page,\?
3. Then you are indicating that I should click on the button on the right side of the screen. Should that be the left? In the lower left had side of the LiveView screen there are two icons- a round black button and a camera/file icon, clicking on the button I still get nothing.
4. The only thing I notice different between your screen shots and my screen is in the upper right corner of the EOS menu I have a little red light and yours appears to be white or clear. It that important?

Hope this is more clear than right or left here and there. This is how mine works and works well on a WIn 8.1 machine with the latest EOS Utility.
Is your lens in MF? It needs to be, if not.

I think I have it, its the little red light in the upper right corner of the EOS menu. What does that indicate and how do I get it to go away? That is the only thing different in our setups.

That is the focus confirmation indicator. That is likely your problem. The lens is not in focus and the camera will not fire.
