I did what you suggested and there is no longer in hangups. I also re-installed Bullguard and have now tested shutdowns a few times, again no delays. Thank you for the quick help.
Did you check both logs though? second should show about a 50 seconds delay. i'll try and re-install my firewall, see if it changes anything.
I followed the step to record a trace for shutdown but I'm not 100% sure I did everything correct. Either way my issue is really long shutdown times, it seems to hang the system anything from 1-5 minutes. My OS is on Crucial M4 SSD. I have tried clean boot which seems to get rid of the problem but when I activate my regular start up items it starts hanging the system again. I have uploaded two trace files, one with the parameters in the OP and one from first time I tried, just a regular boot. Can someone take a look at it? http://min.us/lG8MRVCzJ1ZZ5 http://min.us/luH8XNBs9aPGa Thanks in advance
