Hello, I have noticed that my computer regularly takes 5 or 6 minutes to shutdown and sometimes takes as long as 10 minutes. I was wondering if it could be my resource-hog NIS 2005 or if it may be a broken installation that is slowing it down. Any suggestions?

Thanks in Adavance

do you regularly write data to a write-protected Secure Digital (SD) media card on your computer. this can be part of the issue.

This problem occurs because the small form factor disk driver does not complete the I/O Request Packet (IRP) correctly when it determines that the SD media card is write-protected. During shutdown, the I/O Manager cancels all outstanding I/O Request Packets after two minutes on a Windows XP-based computer and after five minutes on a Windows 2000-based computer. Only then can the computer successfully shut down.

--this was just a suggestion--

Note the time, reboot the computer

at start up...

start > run
eventvwr.msc
<enter>

Look under systems and applications for items with red Xs...list them here.

For once, of course when I do not want it to, it logged off and shutdown momentarily. It rebooted in about a minute or so, maybe because I rebooted about an hour before that. When you say to record the errors under that list, do you mean just the ones at the time of my reboot?

I will leave my computer running for a while, and do a reboot later. I can't believe it rebooted that fast, it never has before.

Thank you for the help, I will post my list of errors at a later time. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I restarted and it took about 3 minutes to shutdown, but there were no errors. I did notice errors from previous shutdowns though if that will be any help.
