Windows 7: Windows 7 shutdown taking 3-5 minutes possibly related to autocheck

Windows 7 Home 32 bit
Windows 7 shutdown taking 3-5 minutes possibly related to autocheck

Diagnosis of Windows 7 SP1 32-bit shutting down slowly (approx. 5 minutes) (compared to 1.5 minutes full boot time to internet). Does not happen in minimal safe mode boot.

Things I tried to remediate with at least one (usually two) reboot(s) between each test:

All windows updates applied.

Virus definitions updated and full scan performed. No threats found.

CCleaner performed to clean registry and uninstalled any programs not used.

Disabled all nonWindows services and all startup programs.

Have run sfc as administrator and not able to fix autocheck so that I can perform a disk check see note below –
2011-11-10 05:58:46, Info CSI 00000038 [SR] Cannot repair member file [l:22{11}]"autochk.exe" of Microsoft-Windows-Autochk, Version = 6.1.7601.17514, pA = PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE_INTEL (0), Culture neutral, VersionScope = 1 nonSxS, PublicKeyToken = {l:8 b:31bf3856ad364e35}, Type neutral, TypeName neutral, PublicKey neutral in the store, hash mismatch

Appropriate Registry item says:
autocheck autochk /r \??\C:
autocheck autochk *

after reboot and autocheck will not run. Scheduling Disk Checker at reboot using windows GUI.

“Depends” program ran on autocheck.exe and nothing abnormal.

Tried to apply hot fix mentioned in:

but when I ran, message received that it did not apply to this installation.

Additional test ran-disabled lots of devices like video/ports/dvd etc. and still happening.

I do not have the Windows 7 Installation CD/DVD because Dell doesn’t ship with one. I do not want to roll back restore to before I noticed the slow shut down because I have tolerated for over a month and not sure exactly when it started.
