Usually a slow shutdown is caused by a program so try:


Check for a bad program:
Search for:


Hit Enter

Go to Services tab and click on the box to hide Microsoft Services then uncheck
everything that remains.  Go to Startup tab and uncheck everything.  OK and
reboot. THe changes you make will not do anything until after a reset so you only the second shutdown might improve. If it doesn't shutdown faster then go back into msconfig and recheck the
things you turned off.  If it helps then go back and turn on a few items each
time until you find the culprit.

ya i saw a skinny about slow shut downs i was gonna read up on. but thanks i will do this. it will probably be a few days when i post the result simply bc i cant stand to sit and just keep rebooting my computer lol. but i will try my best to do it asap. i've already unchecked several of the services i do not recognize, still slow shut down.  all the start up programs are the same and they didn't cause me issues before.


i think i need to make a custom win7 boot drive. do you know if anyone on the forums here can help with that? i of course have an official win7 copy already. just would like to have it have the programs i have and the updates and the settings already there too.
