Windows 7: Removing the warning when you log off

7 ultimate x64

I used a program called "PC Auto Shutdown" when I was running vista and Win 7 (w/o SP1). Didn't get that screen. Try it if you want to.

I may have found what you are looking for: There is a delay when you shut down, restart, or log off a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 From August 16, 2011.

It is a known issue that was to be addressed in SP1, your specs do not show whether or not you have SP1 installed or not.

Please read over the Article carefully, and if you decide to apply the hotfix be sure to create a restore point.

Windows 7 Professional 64-bit

Hi. Yes, I have seen this problem before, it occured before I upgraded my PC to 64-bit (I originally ran a 32-bit OS). I am also running SP1 so this problem shouldn't appear for me.

I think we're getting confused here. You seem to know what I'm talking about, but I've not seen a response that could remove what I mean. Someone mentioned above that it may not be possible, but if it would be possible even via a modification or registry edit, it would be very appreciated.

I found the above link to the KB Article here: Disable waiting for background programs to close? - Neowin Forums

There is a registry modification that you can try there.

But, I feel you will be disappointed because there is no way that you can disable that screen because it is a built in self-preservation feature of the OS.
In order for Windows to shut down properly all other programs have to be closed in order for it to close. If they are not then there is a chance the OS can be corrupted.

If I do come across a solution I will be sure to post back, otherwise I have run out of suggestions.
