    Optical drive letter shows as active task during shutdown/restart


    When I shutdown or restart I get the pop-up about a task preventing shutdown but afaik there are no tasks active.
    What is even more puzzling is that the task name shown is "G" which just happens to be the drive letter of my DVD R/W
    Any ideas?

    Update: I changed DVD R/W drive letter to "Z". But task shown at shutdown/restart still "G" so problem is probably not related to the drive.

    Thanks WOT.
    I just logged in to update this thread after finding that disabling a number of auto-starts removed the issue.
    Utorrent was among them.
