    "Program Manager This App is preventing shutdown"

    Hi all, lately when trying to shut down a blue screen shows up displaying: "Program Manager: This App is preventing shutdown", and I'm given the option of "Shut down anyways" or "Cancel". If I choose shut down it will do it without issues, and if I click Cancel it will go back to the Desktop. I checked Task Manager and there's no "Program Manager" listed, also the CPU usage at idle is 0%, so everything looks normal. Additionally I checked Task Scheduler and Services, and nothing unusual. Thanks for any feedback,
