    WINDOWS 10 NOT SHUTTING DOWN

    Hi Michael, a common enough problem, it will require a registry fix . . .

    Click your Start Button, type regedit and hit Enter - this will open the Registry Editor

    In the left pand, navigate to:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE - SYSTEM - CurrentControlSet - Control

    Then in the Right Pane double click WaitToKillServiceTimeout and change the value to 1000

    Click OK

    Then back in the left Pane, close up all those folders (keys) again (click in the left pane and press left arrow on your keyboard a few times)

    In the left pand, navigate to:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER - Control Panel - Desktop

    Then in the right pane, right click in the blank space and choose New - String Value

    Name the String Value WaitToKillServiceTimeout

    Then double click WaitToKillServiceTimeout

    Set its value to 1000

    Save and close the Registry Editor

    That's It!
