Hi Brink excellent forum glad i found it,Hello Danielson,
Do you have anything running when shutting down the computer? You can check in Task Manager to see what is running before you shutdown.
Did you already do this tutorial? Did it help any at all?
In the mean time, you can use this shutdown shortcut that forces an instant shutdown until you find what program is causing the hang-up at shutdown.
Hope this helps for now,
Yes i have done the full tutorial this will be my second go threw it as i have just had to reinstal vista ultimate "trojan" not related to any guides or links on this forum.
I got reboot time down to 64sec from 108sec was very impressed.
Heres what i see using task manager all apps are closed before shut down, does this help:
Using the shortcut seems to take me out off windows quick but im left with black screen saying "shutting down" for 3 mins +, this never happened before the reinstal "64 sec reboot using the same guide" so i wonder whats wrong, maybe will be easier/faster to reinstall again.
