Task Host problem on shutdown.
Hello. From a couple of days, I've the problem that SOMETIMES (not always), when I shutdown the system, appear the message concerning the system is waiting the closing of Task Host process, but I'm forced to close manually from there, because the waiting is useless.
The message should be this: "1 program still needs to close: (Waiting for) Task Host Window".
It happen only from 7-10 days, and Revo Uninstaller report that in last days I only install some games and these programs:
DivX Pro 6.8.0 VFW
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable
Microsft XNA Framework
Probably, all programs installed with some game.
How can I do? I tried the exact version of hotfix here: There is a delay when you shut down, restart, or log off a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 but it doesn't install because it's probably already installed (I have SP1).
I want to avoid to restore an old statut with System Restore. I have Windows 7 x64 with SP1 and latest updates for everything.

It sounds to me like one of your programs may be loading automatically when you boot up. To check if that is the case you can click on the Start button, choose run and type in msconfig and OK. This will open up system configuration. Then click on the start tab and a list of programs that load at boot up will appear. See if there is something listed that you don't need to load at startup. Personally, I disable all auto startup programs, except for my Internet Security Program, which I want to load up. The rest of my programs I load manually from the desktop or the start menu. If you are unsure about what to do, please feel free to ask and someone here will be glad to help you.
