Windows 7: Delay upon start-up

Delay upon start-up

Hello!
The past few months, I was shutting down my PC and it has delay in shutting down. When I press the shutdown button, wait for 5 more seconds then a darkened screen will appear saying "Waiting for the background programs to close" with an option of Cancel and Force Close. It will took almost 3 - 5 seconds before it will shutdown. I tried several steps. I tried ending processes, windows and other stuffs before shutting down. But still, the window will show up. I also tried unticking some unnecessary startup programs in msconfig. But it didn't solve the problem. Please help, Thanks


PS: Sorry for the title. It should be Delay Before Shutting down. I'm really sorry..

That error happens ever since Windows 3.1 days when there's an application stubborn or reluctant or slow in closing itselfs after receiving the "kill process" from OS, so Windows just friendily reminding you that it is shutting down but some stubborn application really takes its time to exit. After few seconds, it will right itself and Windows will then be given the "safe to close down now" signal and all be fine.
