  1. Program Manager preventing Windows 10 from shutting down


    Hi all. I have search wide and far to resolve this problem but unfortunately I haven't been able to solve this issue. When I go to shut down my pc Windows 10 informs me that Windows cannot shut down due to Program Manager preventing it from doing so.

    This problem started a few months ago after a Windows 10 update, I did not have this problem before.

    After an exhausted search I came across some suggestion which I tried but were only temporarily, because at the next shut down the issue reappeared and I was back to square one.

    Can any one offer a genuine solution to me?

    Much appreciated

    Cheers

    Joseph

    PC will not crash. but the program manager is running background and might allows to shut down for a few seconds later.

    There is a settings in group policy editor to hungup running programs to prevent a shutdown. i forgot were is located.

    Also i suspect that program manager application is installed by third-party applications

    Program manager prevents shut down

    I first wrote about this problem in AUGUST of 2015! I have followed the steps and suggestions on this thread, as well as others I had found from people with the same issue. The message still shows up, and I have been keeping track over the last couple
    of weeks when I shut down. It takes from 3 to 10 seconds from when the message shows for my PC to shut down. I can't believe that 6 months after it was first noticed that there hasn't been some suggestion, patch or information given that could correct this.
