Windows 7: Win7 ShutDown - Application active in background

Windows 7 Pro x64
Win7 ShutDown - Application active in background


I have been running Windows 7 x64 since Feb, with no problems. How unique for an M$ product...

Recently the Shutdown sequence is delayed and I see a short flash for Windows 7 version of "Application in the Background". The message is on-screen for less than a second with no application noted, and then the Blue Shutdown screen comes up.

This is a new issue, and I would love to get it sorted. If it were not for that, I can shutdown in 10 sec.

Anyone have some suggestions??

Also, I am looking for a decent color adjustment program. I am capable if matching colors or patterns, but Windows 7 RGB adjustment scheme is worthless to me. My eye is not thaty good, and that interface is not grand either....

Thanx in advance for any input...
