    Force a Specific App/Task to Close at Shutdown

    Hi,

    I've been having trouble with a specific app that refuses to close itself when I shutdown/reboot/logoff. Forcing the app to close won't hurt it or my data, it just refuses to close at shutdown because it's poorly coded. (It's a big-name non-MS app so I won't
    name it.)

    Is there any way I can make Windows ignore this app and shut down regardless?

    PS: I don't want to use the AutoEndTasks reg key or anything with a similar effect because this would force close all apps, regardless of unsaved data. I just want Windows to ignore this
    one specific app.

    Thanks,

    Leah

  3. My pc takes for ever to shut down when i restart

    Suggest cleaning up your startup list .There may be many services / Apps you can remove on startup which is not needed on boot or during shutdown.
    Before you shutdown the Pc check what is running in Task Manager as a program or service in not killing the process on shutdown

    Would suggest cleaning up running apps and services -Autoruns, StartupMonitor,HighjackThis,
    Malware Scan - Malwarebytes,ADWcleaner, Combofix

    Shutdown PC when a specific app is closed - WIN 10

    ShutDown button in desktop (Win-10)

    yeah it works but i have another problem with this combination.

    Shutdown/Restart shortcut force windows to shutdown without letting other apps to save their data, that is a bit nuisance.

    for eg:

    Utorrent is force closed and when i start the pc, it re-calculate all the toorents in the list even those that are already downloaded and currently in seeding state. It happens when utorrent is not closed properly.

    So is there any way to NORMALLY shutdown/restart/loggoff/lock windows pc?
