    Wind 7 Home Premium 64 Bits/ Win 8 64 Bits

    Hi all;
    All this while, the start up and shut down time for my Windows 8 is really fast.

    However, starting from yesterday, i found out my shut down time has lagged considerably. What used to be a speedy shutdown now drags on and on. Can anyone help me to diagnosis what the problem may be?

    The only change i can recall is installing EASUS partition master. However, neither did i change the partition nor save anything when exiting EASUS partition master. I only use it to view my partition size on my C Drive and D Drive. However, i have already done a clean uninstall of EASUS.

    You can try the following:

    1. launch a regedit

    2. go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control

    3. in WaitToKillServiceTimeOut set the value to 2000 (that is 2 seconds)
