    WIndows 8: Slow shut down time.

    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.

    Did you install iTunes recently?

    Did you add network drives? Or share your drives?

    What were the last 3 or 4 programs that you installed?

    Did you install a recent windows update?

    How many shutdowns did you notice that was slow? Less than 4 times?

    Is the bootup slow as well? or just shutdown?

    Are programs waiting to close on your shutdown screen?

Hi all. I just upgraded Win7 to Win8 the other day. Each time I try to shut down my PC, I see the new frowny face BSOD for a spilt second, then my PC reboots (instead of shutting down). I changed some setting to avoid the auto reboot and ensure a dump file was being created. Now, the BSOD...
