    win explorer not repsonding at shutdown


    I set up a "shutdown" shortcut on my desktop that calls "shutdown.exe" and almost every time after I click on the shortcut I see a message dialog box that saying explorer is not responding and it takes a while for that dialog box to close and then finish shutting off the computer.

    I've noticed this also happens when using the start menu->power->shutdown.

    any suggestions?

    after changing to slidetoshutdown, I am still experiencing the same problem with explorer failing to respond. I've noticed this problem since moving to a new system and the installation of Win 10 Pro 64bit and upgrade to the 1511 build.
