Windows 7: trying to debug slow shutdown

31 Aug 2011   #11

Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit

Setting ClearPageFileAtShutdown to zero changed the shutdown time from 2.5 minutes to about 30 seconds.
I am not so worried about the security concerns because I am using PGP Whole Disk Encryption. On security Windows is a sieve anyway for anyone determined to crack in, so it's not clear that it matters all that much.

I am trying to figure out now what is changing the value back to 1. I haven't isolated when it happens, maybe within a few days of my editing my registry to set it to 0.

I have a theory that this is somewhere in the Domain policy for my company that it should be 1, or that there is some security software running on my machine (Security Essentials, Lenovo Toolkit) that sets it to 1.

Anyone have ideas?

One additional benefit of setting it to 0 is to limit the number of writes to the SSD, since SSD's are flash and wear out.
