Windows 7: cscript.exe hangs during shutdown

cscript.exe hangs during shutdown

For the last two weeks or so I've been getting the popup shown in the attached image every time I shut down. Has anyone seen this or know what is causing it. I had to repair WAU a while back -- that's the only thing that has changed recently.

Open a command prompt. Start / All Programs / Accessories / Command Prompt. Right click CMD select Run As Admin. Type: sfc /scannow and hit enter. Let it run and finish. It might take a bit so be patient. Let us know if it fixes it.

The scan didn't find any integrity violations. I did a restart after the scan, and the cscript thing didn't pop up. I'll report back over the weekend whether or not it recurs. --Thanks.

The problem has not recurred. The sfc must have fixed it, even tho it said it didn't find any violations. Thanks, Lance. Marked as solved.
