Im doing the clean Startup brb an let you know Edit: back from doing the reboot. Like I said befor the system reboots fine all day long but if it sets over night it will stick at the shutdown screen Edit2: I added the sfc/scannow log file My System Specs

 24 Dec 2013 #14 andrew129260 Windows 10 Pro 4,763 posts I don't see anything really bad in there (that would affect a long startup/shutdown time). Although I would personally uninstall java, and delete from startup itunes related items. I would also delete pdf complete from startup as well. Does your pc ever go to sleep? When it does, and you wake it back up, does it take forever? You could try looking into event viewer during the shut down process and see what is going on. Do you always close all programs until at your desktop, and then click shut down? Or do you shut down with programs open? Also see here: Shut Down -Speed Up My System Specs

 25 Dec 2013 #18 Layback Bear Windows 10 Pro. 64/ version 1709 26,197 posts Northern Ohio I know very little about a web server running 24/7 but some things look strange to me. Running Avast and Webroot at the same time to the best of my knowledge is a no no. One anti virus installed and running on one computer at a time. Daemon tools and Itunes I also don't understand for a 24/7 Web Server. Both of these have caused many people problems for a long time. As I have proven by my questions I really don't know much about Web Servers running 24/7. Microsoft LifeCam has got me confused also. I'm really not all these things need to starting up at boot. There for Windows 7 won't have to shut them down when you do turn off your computer. I only have my Security Programs start at boot in msconfig, Startup. Other things start on my or Windows 7 request when needed. I'm also not running a 24/7 Web Server; is that the difference? Understanding these thing will be a learning experience for me. I hope you don't mind. My System Specs
