  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

    What is the difference between Shutdown and Restart?

    Restart and shutdown do not function from START button

    If I select restart or shutdown from the log in screen, they work. Both also work from safe mode with networking.

    Nothing obvious in the event log.

    Any suggestions for the next step?
