I've read about this but never experienced it until the last several weeks. I am seeing very long shutdown times on my Win7 x64 Ultimate system. I'm not quite sure when it started because I rarely reboot and my system is on 24/7 (gotta say I love the stability!). I saw one thread where someone suggested it might have something to do with the Right Click Menu option in Malwarebyte's Anti Malware, so I disabled that. I thought that did the trick, but it just happened on my last reboot which I did about an hour ago. Took about 10 minutes to get through the Shutdown screen to where the PC rebooted. Is there a way to see how long various things took to complete during the Shutdown process like in the Event viewer?
