8 Step Help, Computer takes a long time to shut down

  1. Here are my logs. There are two Superantispyware ones because I had to stop the scan once.

    Basically when I go start > turn off computer. It takes forever for the options to shut down or restart to come up.

    Help greatly appreciated. :)

    Yep whatever the he77 that is, and any others that are there too

    YES that's what I'm talking about, why were there more (rhetorically speaking of course, because I'm not interested)

    That's the only one I've ever used. Just wanted to check out that program. I'm like 19 dude. I'm not going around pirating software and selling copies of it. Lot's of people do it for their own personal use, in fact I think that you could be safe to say that half the people here registered to techspot do it.
    I regret doing it now that it's not going to get the help I need. Can't you just overlook it and help me out? It's gone now....

    I don't know why but its kinda like you're like treating me like I'm some kind of horrible person. O.o

    Remove any cracked versions of software/keygens you have and help will most likely resume.

    Run IE Reset Fixit Tool:
    Or manually from here https://www.techspot.com/vb/post682762-2.html
    Then restart Internet Explorer

    • Download [​IMG]Combofix to your desktop.
    • Disable your Antivirus (as Combofix will remove any found malwares)
    • Double click ComboFix & follow the prompts.
    • A window will open with a warning.
    • When the scan completes it will open a text window. Please attach that log back here
    Also restart and provide a fresh HJT Scan log

    Un-install Combofix
    • Click START then RUN
    • Now type Combofix /uninstall in the runbox and click OK
    • Any popup errors about Antivirus just ok or close
    Note: 1 space after ComboFix in that uninstall command

    Uninstall SUPERAntispyware

    Udate Java and remove older Java versions

    It will also help you check for new Java updates Runtime updates
    Or just go here and auto check: http://java.com/en/download/installed.jsp?detect=jre&try=1

    Download and run TFC http://oldtimer.geekstogo.com/TFC.exe

    All finished, everything is much better. The option to shutdown, restart, etc comes up instantly and shutdown is faster too. Thanks.

    A couple of questions though, why remove Superantispyware? And is it normal to have 7-9 svchost exe running in the process list?

    SUPERAntispyware doesn't find all that much
    And I don't think it should start with Windows auto protecting all the time (user choice)

    The Windows svchost is a generic term for Windows drivers and Services
    You can see some of the Windows Services that have started here: Start button [​IMG], > Search > services.msc
