Windows 7 x64 - Slow Shutdown

So my PC suddenly has a slow shutdown. I used Avast antivirus and Malwarebytes to check for viruses/antispywares and nothing happened. Tried to look into registry, but nothing changed.

I tried a clean boot and everything went OK, but I have no idea which of the services is the problem as I only have active in the startup-tab the processes that are required for the drivers (bluetooth, intel rapid storage, etc)

Any idea how can I solv this problem?

It takes like 2 minutes for it to shut down.

Do you have any processes or programs open when the shutdown commences even though this shouldn't be a problem?

Please don't bump, it's against forum rules.
I don't think you should worry about a slow shut-down. Generally when you shut down a pc you don't wait for it.
Try doing some windows updates.
ECT.

I'm sorry then.

My PC is up-to-date with everything. (Windows updates and/or software updates)

The PC should start and run with nothing checked in startup.

You could also turn off all non-Microsoft services as a test.

I'd do those 2 things and see if shutdown speed is better. If it is, you know the problem is something that is in startup or a non-Microsoft service. You could then eliminate them one by one through trial and error.

Did a clean boot and everything went fine.

I'll have to do that, though, it seems. I thought someone here already knew which one of the services was causing the problem.
