Windows 7: Very long shut down time

30 Jun 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
Very long shut down time

Hey guys,

I am having a problem relating to my shut down time. There is certainly no windows update running. The screen just go to the 'blue shut down screen' and the windows loading circle just go round and round. I havent really wait for the laptop to shut down as the laptop is in office and I just left for the past two days.

The event viewer log is at below. I shut my pc down around 8.52 I think.

Not sure what is the 1:34 am thing.

Hello melvin and welcome to Seven Forums.

Did this problem just recently start? If yes, have you changed anything about your computer (added new software, changed any settings, etc?) If a recent problem you could try restoring your computer to a date/time prior to when the shut down issue began.

Recycling a movie from my harddrive is taking long long time.
Why is this. Like 10 minutes plus and it still says recycling. It should only take a second. Is it bad to let it continue at its own pace or should I restart the PC and try it again?

Long shut down time
Applied the this script to solve lengthy time to shutdown W7. Not one iota of difference it made. It takes the same amount of time to shutdown. When you think about it a value of 10000 or 1000 makes no difference at all when you convert it to actual time.
