It seems as if my computer is taking longer and longer to shut down. There have been no changes in my Startup, nor do I leave programs open when I shut down my computer.
Often I wait a minute for the "SAVING YOUR SETTINGS" screen to go off, and then another half a minute for the "WINDOWS IS SHUTTING DOWN" screen to go off and finally shut the computer off. It never took this long before. Any suggestions at what may be causing this and what I might try to speed my shutdown off? Thank you.
