My start up is good on time, but my shut down takes a VERY long time or does not ever shut down and I get a "Windows did not shut down properly" prompt when I use the comp. again. Why the long shut down? If something is running in the background I am not aware of it. Or I would not know why something would not shut down/close and then cause the huge lag? Where do I need to look into the fix this?
In order for me to provide some accurate troubleshooting steps, can you please post your DxDiag Report here?
