You're welcome and glad you have it fixed.

Thanks for the "Thank-you", but the real Thank-you belongs to the Tutorial authors, SF mods and owners...

I won't comment on Brink - his head might not fit in the picture

Kaspersky's to blame

I hadn't conciously activated the Clear Swap File during Reboot so I was surprised to discover that it was active and slowing my shut-down up dramatically.
Then I discovered a default setting in the Kaspersky Privacy Cleanser - which I use regularly - that enables clearing as an additional action. Once activated, it remains that way until you de-activate. Kas users beware!
