Windows 7: "Preparing security options" screen after attempted shutdown

"Preparing security options" screen after attempted shutdown

So this is the second time this has happened to me in the past few weeks. And the time before was when I was shutting down and exiting programs (I used my power button on my laptop)

Last time I reported this I didn't get the information from the SF Diag tool properly, and being that I have the program up to date, hopefully this will shed some light. I'm HOPING SF Diag got the right information and that I used it correctly.
