I buying a toshiba laptop just a month, but I had found out it's problem. When shuting down it needs a long period to totally shutdown but if I using it just for awhile everything ok just when I using longer peroiod, ie, 1 and half hour than the problem came across. Note that my com is clean from crap because this laptop just mean for work which is for general accounting thing, there is no addition software but avg 8.5 only. I had ask about some friends and they dun have ideas. I had try other suggestion and some reply me that maybe it is over heating or maybe I putting 3gb of ram making it unparalleled. Any pro have suggestion? Thank for your all kindness and precious time for sharing. :)

Is the laptop still under warranty?

AVG may be a problem.

Go Start>Run (Start Search in Vista), type in:
msconfig
Click OK (hit Enter in Vista).

Click on Startup tab.
Click Disable all

Click Services tab.
Put checkmark in Hide all Microsoft services
Click Disable all.

Click OK.
Restart computer in Normal Mode.

NOTE. If you use different firewall, than Windows firewall, turn Windows firewall on, just for this test, since your regular firewall won't be running.
If you use Windows firewall, you're fine.

Use it for a while, and try to shut it down, then.

I had search a lot and found out Toshiba not a good com. I had regret to buy it now... The problem is slow shutdown when using for long period so the outlet don't believe me due to they don't want to wait.

My question was this...
If you use my procedure, does the computer shut down properly?
Yes, you'll see limited number of icons, and this was on purpose.

Note to Broni: Fast shutdown enabled or disabled in the registry, possibly?

Are you talking about AutoEndTasks setting, or WaitToKillAppTimeout setting?

canis
Are you saying, that, if you shut down computer right away, it's shutting down OK, but if you keep it up for a while, then the same problem occurs?

To BRONI:

HKCR\Control Panel\Desktop > WaitToKillAppTimeout

I think the default is 20000 (20 seconds). Maybe it should change to 10000 (10 seconds).

Maybe AutoEndTasks should be set at 1.

Also, HungAppTimeout should be at 5000 or less.

Since dealing with the registry, those tricks should be rather left for advanced users, in my opinion.

I agree...advising people to change settings in the registry even with step by step and backing up the reg first has the potential to really screw things up...we have to be real careful here or instead of helping we can cause things to get worse...
with that said I have set both WaitToKillAppTimeout and AutoEndTasks ...
if AutoEndTasks is set to clear the Paging File on Exit (value of 1)..it adds lots of time to the shutdown process...setting the value 0 (false) turns it off and will significantly speed up the shutdown process....info here...

ERUNT (Emergency Recovery Utility NT) allows you to keep a complete backup of your registry and restore it when needed.
The standard registry backup options that come with Windows back up most of the registry but not all of it. ERUNT however creates a complete backup set, including the Security hive and user related sections. ERUNT is easy to use and since it creates a full backup, There are no options or choices other than to select the location of the backup files. The backup set includes a small executable that will launch the registry restore if needed.
