Hi ChiaWei! Zardoc has made a registry entry that should fix it! Check here: Desktop and Shutdown Tweaks Combined

Stop everything running in your system tray, like antivirus or anything else that appear there. Also unplug any peripherals like gaming controllers, webcam or USB sticks.
If Windows shuts down normally you know its one of these programs or devices that is causing the problem.
Another thing to do is to start in Safe mode and see how shutdown behaves from there.
Again, if its quick then the cause is definitely a device or program.

here the answer for most of you.

What you want to do is go to the registry and change a couple values. Open the registry(go to start type regedit) and locate the key{ \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Memory Management}, then change the value of ClearPageFile at Shutdown to a 0 IF the value is 1. If the value is 1, it will take longer for your computer to shutdown..this fix cured it all for me. I also did this :

okay, despite replying to a very old post, I would say be very careful (I would also say don't) when you mess with the registry. Try this instead. No need to buy anything and if you don't know how to do something, don't do it (they give red warnings at the top of the tutorials if that is the case): Optimize Windows 7

(This just in case someone sees this post later on)

Long shut down time
Applied the this script to solve lengthy time to shutdown W7. Not one iota of difference it made. It takes the same amount of time to shutdown. When you think about it a value of 10000 or 1000 makes no difference at all when you convert it to actual time.
