    OK, new information.

    While researching how to disable Fastboot I discovered that W10 treats Shutdown and Restart differently. Everything I said about shutdown slowdowns was about Restart. I rarely use Shutdown alone. Sorry for the confusion.

    So I decided to do a pure "Shutdown". It went very fast. 3-5 seconds. But it still generated critical errors (attached) but now they are labelled "Boot" instead of shutdown. One seems to have to do with the Avast I have running. I will need to investigate that next.

    High Disk Usage during Startup, slows down my pc Solved - Windows 10 Forums
    "it's avast... one of it's settings (settings/general/smart scan) is scan for compatibility issues - meaning check to make sure programs are compatible... if it is on, you get HDD crunch on boot up as it is checking EVERYTHING running..."

    But my Avast (free) does not have "scan for compatibility issues". Turned off some unimportant components of Smartscan. Will see if it makes a difference.

    Okay. Saw your posting re shutdown and restart. If it shutdowns correctly than you can leave fast boot and fast Startup alone. They influence starting from power on.

    You could just uninstall Avast and see if things clear.

    I uninstalled Avast and booted twice. Made no difference in time and Event viewer still showed the same critical error on shutdown. So I re-installed Avast.
    I'm going to be away from my laptop for the next 10 days so I'm going to leave things alone. It does not seem to be a major problem right now. Thanks for the help.
