Well it just laggs at the desktop for about 10sec before iy start it shutdown, When I was running Windows 7-64RC it would shutdown as soon as you hit the key? Maybe it is normal but it seems to take longer then it did before this reinstall.

Perhaps you could try defragmenting.

Also check how many programs are running in the background when you shut down Windows. Usually, I dont have more than 3 programs running which includes my antivirus, MSN IM and some little apps.

It was at 12000 and I change it to 2000. It seem to be Ok at that setting. You don't think that is to much do you?
