Task Host Window

I've seen other people post this problem before about shut down. My problem might be a little different. When I first start my computer everything is good, but if I let it sit idle for about a hour or so that's when I have problems If I click on an icon to open a program it take 5 to 10 minute to open and it's real slow. No matter what I do. I hit control,alt and delete and after awhile the task manager come's up and I go to applications and nothing is running. So I go to start and hit shut down and after a little bit I get a prompt to force close programs I hit yes and then I get a window telling me I will lose unsaved info again I say yes then I get a window pops up that says "Task Host Window is closing programs that are running" and after all that it takes about 10 minutes to shut down. Any help would be greatly appreciated

You should check the processes tab and sort by CPU. Also open a resource monitor screen (performance tab of task manager) and change to disk tab, sort by read, then write, see if you can spot anything. Have these windows open before the issue happens.

Also try a clean startup Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup
