Windows 7: Long shut down time

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.

Hi,

What is lengthy time for you?

As you can see it made a difference to most who use it as it did for me for 5 years.

Maybe there is another issue that we can try to find.

I'm sorry pal, didn't mean to be critical. It's just frustrating to be searching for a needle in a haystack in the dark.

Are we talking about windows 7 or something else? what's with the 5 years reference? My windows XP used to shut down instantly without any tweaks ( instantly = under 6 seconds). Now, with windows 7 (clean install and 5.7 experience index rated) it's over 3 minutes on a good day. There is absolutely no problems reported during the shut down process and I make sure to close all items in tray before shutting down including Kaspersky 2010 internet security and logging off.

Checked all logs and events. Nada. No hung or stubborn service whatsover.

So my question is what exactly is windows 7 doing for 3 minutes after you direct it to shut down?

Yeah the five years ment XP also. The tweak speeds up shutdown of services and running apps and forces shutdown. Now it seems that there is something that won't terminate.

Can you type MSconfig and tell me what you see in startup.

We'll start with that and I'll have the post sent to general area so it can have a larger audience since I work and can't always reply fast.

Hello Zardoc:

The following are my startups in msconfig:

Microsoft intellipoint
Kaspersky Anti-Virus
Java Platform SE 6 U16

Get them grey cells working Zardoc.

Kaspersky? Oh, dear God... Nevermind...

There must be something else in there. Are you trying to tell me that all you installed in Windows 7 is the anti-virus and JAVA? Is this a fresh installation of Win7? Also, this may be a hardware issue. I used to have an old HDD that ran on ATA, basic Win7 operations were quite slow (including shutdown).

Recycling a movie from my harddrive is taking long long time.
Why is this. Like 10 minutes plus and it still says recycling. It should only take a second. Is it bad to let it continue at its own pace or should I restart the PC and try it again?
