Hello UnReal4, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Have you tried just wait? I mean, I have one computer which shuts down slower than others, this screen can sometimes stay there a minute or two but then finally is closed and the computer shuts down.

It is always better to close all programs and applications before shutting down. Forcing computer to shut down can cause problems. It's better to click Cancel if this screen appears, and check Task Manager to see which program or process is still running and causing this.

Hello UnReaL4, welcome to Seven forums!

Just to be sure, get the free version of the program at the link below and run a full scan with it to see if any malware has snuck in; be sure to post back with the outcome. As Kari said it's not good to force a shutdown as you may disable the PC when doing so.
