I have posted about this problem before but could not get a response, so I will try again and be more detailed.
My computer takes a very long time to shutdown or restart, usually around 5-10 minutes. When I restart or shutdown soon after booting up, though, it shuts down immediately. I have tried numerous attempts at fixing this issue but none have been successful.
Here's what happens when I attempt to shutdown or restart:
First, my NIS 2005 shuts down and a ending program window (ending program CcApp) usually pops up. This is followed by no response for a few minutes. Finally windows begins to log off. This process also takes a few minutes. The saving settings screen then comes up for a few seconds followed by the windows is shutting down screen which takes a minute or two.
I don't know if I have an application hang or what. But I have tried the hive cleanup service as well as tune-up utilities 2006 to fix my registry.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
