Note once removed you will have to change your bios options to load from the external drive

Why would you install Windows to an external drive ?

Ok so finally removed the internal HDD of my laptop and here are the results:

1.Finally shut down worked
2.Finally updated Microsoft .NET Framework
3.Software Setups don't hang forever anymore
4.Finally installed a better AV
5.Laptop's performance became faster
6.I can now open recycle bin and delete items in recycle bin
7.Finally my external HDD has now the Windows Logo right next to it in Computer
8.Automatic CHKDSK finally stopped when i'm booting
9.Faster Manufacturer (DELL) Logo Boot
10.Annoying BSOD that makes my laptop crash anytime the BSOD wants

So it means that the internal HDD that was corrupted, is messing up with my laptop causing troubles in my laptop and keep having CHKDSK scans and more bad stuffs i don't like either. Thanks torchwood for helping me with my very big trouble which i thought is that it just messes up with my shutdown but with my whole laptop also. This forums is a really good place for people having lots of computer/laptop issues which they cannot fix
