Windows 7: RAID event monitor causing problems at shutdown

Windows 7 64 bit
RAID event monitor causing problems at shutdown

Hi, everyone! I recently upgraded from Vista to 7 Home Premium 64-bit on a month-old machine. The computer has been running 7 for several weeks, and this error just showed up within the last couple of days.

When I go to shutdown or restart, I get a screen that says Waiting for background processes to close. The screen is only up for maybe a second, with no list of what process needs to close. Then Windows shuts down normally.

I went through msconfig and determined that the RAID event monitor is the program causing the hangup. What does this mean? Has anyone else encountered problems with this? Is there any way to fix it other than just disabling the program in msconfig?

Any help would be greatly appreciated! I am very noobish and really don't know what to do here.

Fill in your hardware specs with HWInfo32 and update your drivers with the guide in my sig. You need that app if you have RAIDED hard drives.

Windows 10 Pro x64, Windows 8.1 Pro x64, Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1,

What you are seeing is normal as far as I can see. There will always be things in the background that are closing. They close before they are listed. Each of my 4 Windows 7 machines, 2 x86 and 2 x64 each have this occur most of the time.
