    You can tweak the registry a little bit to speed up startup & shutdown.
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
    Thanks topgundcp. I will try that to speed up the process. I have noticed a big performance decrease since upgrading my personal computer to Windows 10 which is the Acer Aspire 5250.

    Count Mike, after tweaking the registry like what topgundcp said to do. It somehow disabled the hybrid shutdown. I don't know. But when I put in what you said to do, it shut down normally.

    Correct .. that's the norm for me when I shutdown
