Slow shutdown
This may cure it. It will take about 8-10 seconds for Windows to close after the fix:
1- Start/Run and type Regedit
3- Click on “Control” [highlight]
4- Select “Wait to kill service timeout” [in right hand pane]
5- Right click and select “Modify”
6- Set to a lower value than 2000
7- A setting of 200 will be sufficient

Normal setting is 2000 but can safely be reduced to 200 for a quick shutdown. Sometimes in PCs, including my own, an extra nought is added on to make it 20000. Not sure why this happens but when it does it leads to a very long shutdown time.

Go to Restore and turn all partitions Off except C:\ the one with Operating System on it. If C:\ set that to 8% of drive. Turn off any External drive letters
