I make sure every possible process/program is shut down. When I click the "Shut Down" button it takes almost a full minute to complete turn off my PC. Specs below, any advice would be appreciated.

Win 7 64-bit
ASUS M4A79 Deluxe MOBO
8gig RAM
4890 HDRadeon w/1gig RAM
Antec 750 PSU
Phenom 3.2ghz 955 OC'd to 3.6ghz
Three (3) WD 2TB HD's slaves
One (1) 60gig OCZ Vertex 4 SSD

Have you troubleshot your shut down crawl with clean boot? Odds are you have app or driver conflicts causing the molasses. When was the last time if ever your housekept your system with CCleaner, CCEnhanger, JetClean and System Ninja. First and foremost whack all your accumulated crud. Next, if still persistent, you can "kill" any obstinate programs and force a speedy shut down with a few simply registry hack...

1. Open Regedit.
2. Navigate to [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control]
3 . On the right panel look for the "WaitToKillServiceTimeout" string and change its value by right clicking the string and selecting Modify.
4. Default Value WaitToKillServiceTimeout=20000
5. Modified value WaitToKillServiceTimeout=5000 or even 1000 if you want to go for broke

Or, the easy way would be to run the attached .reg, which will do the work for you.

Thanks for reply.

I live by CCleaner along with SuperAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes.

I do have an add-on USB 3.0 that plugs into a PCI slot that requires it's own drivers and now that I think about it, it was around that time when I installed it that I started having this problem.

I will try your reg hack.

The regedit certainly did a nice job, which it should cutting the shutdown time of processes in half.

Then the second time I shutdown my pc it wasn't quite as fast. I had utterly cleaned out my drives using every possible program out there and save for the first shutdown which was extremely fast, future shutdowns are taking their time.

Is there any other possible reasons for a slow shutdown?

Try enabling verbose startup. It'll show you more steps in the startup/shutdown process. You might be able to see something taking forever and figuring out from there what to do about it.

I'm running Win 7 not XP. That page you sent me to is for systems running XP.

It's the same steps either way.
