Hello Ebartolon,

It sounds like you may have something that is still running that is causing the hangup. Do you have all open windows and programs closed before shutting down? Also check to make sure that Windows Update is not installing something before shutting down as well.

Hope this helps for now,
Shawn

before you shut down, take a look at what is running in the taskmanager if you can. Close whatever programs you are using before you look so you can see anything unusual.

7000 for me shuts down fine.
