Windows 7: Microsoft preps Windows 7 for SP1 testing

I suspect it will at least correct the "Taskhost" bug upon shutting down Windows 7.

It appears to be a rampant issue and it's bugging me a lot lately. While it's harmless, this message should never appear.

This is the official Microsoft response to this bug.

By the way, I tried downloading and installing the hotfix, and it did not work.

Another thing that will cause a delay in shutdown time is going too low if you opt to lower the WaitToKillServices tweak. The 2000 mark in the guide for this allows for everything to close out while going beyond that too far isn't a good idea. Shut Down -Speed Up[2]=Performance Maintenance

At the 800 mark even lower then the 1000 mark seen in another combination tweak, https://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...ed.html?filter[2]=Performance Maintenance You start seeing the "waiting for 1 program to close" type messages onscreen when going to log off or restart.

Rasing things back up a bit will avoid the need to request a hotfix if this is something you did already. The 2000 mark seen in the first guide covers everything while still bringing the time down from 12000 = 12 seconds to 2000 = 2 seconds. At 800 and lower expect problems! I ran into that at 500 and lower.

All that of course is separate from what you would be seeing in a service pack since that's a custom mod of the registry itself you do on your own there. The service pack generally incorporates updates for various things like system services as well as occasionally enabling something needed for a new hardware. I'm sure that SP1 for 7 will also address any issues with the new USB 3.0 now being seen as well.

This isn't when the screen darkens and tells you Windows is waiting for programs to close is it?

That's exactly the problem.

My first reaction is, "Why mess up this wonderful operating system witha sevice pack"? But from past experiences SPs do fix things after the beta, then test, then test and then final release. I will of course wait for the final release...again, "Why mess up this wonderful operating system witha sevice pack"?

Oh, I thought that was how it was supposed to work. Mine never hangs, it takes a few seconds and then shuts down.

Mine doesn't hang either, but it delays for approximately 500 ms before proceeding with the rest of the shutdown procedures.

500 ms here, 500 ms there, pretty soon, you'll be shaving off some real time from my life.
