Windows 10: Event Viewer Service causing Shutdown/Restart slowdown.

    Event Viewer Service causing Shutdown/Restart slowdown.


    So, I'm having a really weird issue.

    I have a pc with a win10 Pro.
    It was upgraded from Windows 8. Still in windows 8 the shutdown and the restart took like 10 minutes each time.
    Upgraded to 10 expecting this not to happen.. It still does..

    After alot of search, I started disabling Windows services a few blocks at a time, and after that 1 at a time.

    My conclusion is that when the event viewer service is online, the computer takes forever to shutdown or reboot..
    If I disable the service, the computers shutdown and restart are done in a matter of seconds..
    I've tested this.

    Sooo.. I'm lost here.. Tried sfc /scannow to see if that would fix something, but nothing was detected..

    You can force it to shutdown. 1000 = 1 second.
    Code:
    reg add "HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop" /v "AutoEndTasks" /t REG_SZ /d "1" /f
    reg add "HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop" /v "HungAppTimeout" /t REG_SZ /d "5000" /f
    reg add "HKCU\Control Panel\Desktop" /v "WaitToKillAppTimeout" /t REG_SZ /d "5000" /f
    reg add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control" /v "WaitToKillServiceTimeout" /t REG_SZ /d "5000" /f

    Ty for your time..

    Your solution worked on the 1st reboot.. 2nd one took 10 minutes again..

    Check Administrative events in Event Viewer, what is blocking shutdown command.

    I can't find anything.

    In the App reports tho there are critical errors regarding intel rapid storage technology.

    Ok, so I recloned the windows 8 HDD, reupgraded to Win 10, and the PC now shutsdown and restart at a normal speed..

    I guess something must've been corrupted or something while installing Win 10 the 1st time.
