Windows 7: Which program tracks the shutdown processes

Which program tracks the shutdown processes

There was a program with which one could track the system shutdown processes - but I forgot the name of it.

My system is getting ridiculous. It has always been slow at shutdown. That's why I set the Reg Key to 2000ms. But that does not help.

The system boots in 15 seconds but needs 2 minutes to shut down. And that from a M4 SSD and an i7 CPU with 8GBs of RAM.

If anybody remebers the program, please let me know.
