Start -> Run.
Type: eventvwr.msc.
Press <enter>.
After the "Event Viewer" is open.
Go through the Application, System and Security Logs.
In the right-pane of the window, you will have various events.
Can you check if you have events with event-no. 1517 or 1524 with source as Userenv at the same time as you shutdown.
If and only if such events are present; Download: User Profile Hive Cleanup.
User Profile Hive Cleanup is Microsoft service(can be seen in services.msc) and will try to speed-up shutdowns by freeing up dangling registry keys.

If the aforementioned events are not present in you Event Viewer logs; post back.

Hi, i'm a little lost on how do i know those are at the times i shutdown? I have many 1517 in there with userenv and they show warning signs to the left. There are 7 of those on todays date. They are all under the application. But can't say if they were at shutdowns. Thanks
