    We have several computers in our organization that intermittently get stuck on “Shutting Down”.   I have added a registry key that displays the status of the shut down on the screen.  This appears to occur after all services have shut down.  I found a thread in Microsoft Technet and have tried the following:
    1. Regedit
    2. Go to HKEY_local_Machine-System-CurrentControlSet-Control-WaitToKillService

    3. Set the Value to 2000
    4. Add 32bit Value WaitToKillAppTimeout

    5. Set the value to 2000
    6. If there is a Key AutoEndTask set its value to 1

    7. Open CMD Prompt

    8. run chkdsk /r /f /x

    9. Run sfc /scannow

    10. Open Regedit and go to <span style=”font-family: Calibri, sans-serif; font-size: 11pt;”>HKEY_local_Machine-System-CurrentControlSet-Control-Session
    Manager-Memory Mangement-ClearPageFileAtShutdown</span>

    11. Set Value to 0

    12. msconfig

    13. Select Selective Startup

    14. Uncheck Load Startup Item

    15. Select the sevices tab

    16. Hide All Microsoft Services

     

    Any other ideas would be appreciated.
