Windows 10: Slow shutdown with event id errors

    Slow shutdown with event id errors

    Windows 10 64 bit, latest version, is working fine on my Toshiba i7 laptop with 8 Gb ram. But I have problems with shutdowns when I click on restart. It seems to take far too long to shutdown. I am not sure how to find out why but when checking out the event viewer, I found several shutdown errors (some critical and some warnings). So I got the following screen shots (not sure how I got there) which seem to reveal several errors during shutdown. When I click on the web link I get a non working website.

    1. How do I find out what is making shutdowns so slow when I click restart? (I "think" Shutdown seems faster if I just click on shutdown instead of restart)
    2. What problem do these screenshots of error indicate and how do I fix them?
    Thank you
    Got to those screens: Control Panel - Administrative Tools - Component services. Event viewer(Local) -Applications and Services Logs - Microsoft -Windows - Diagnostics Performance - Operational.

    Here are some recent error screenshots which occur in both shutdown and bootups.
    As can be seen this is a problem that goes back to 2016.

    Hi Curious.

    In looking into some of these codes, 200 & 203, two different Technet articles pointed to third party software. The recommended process to identify the culprit is a clean boot. Brink outlines the entire process in this tutorial.

    Performed the clean boot. Still have the delay in shutdown. But I can't check the event errors like before because of the limitations.

    I had no internet in safeboot. But I got to the instructions on my phone and rebooted to normal but hit a big problem
    error your pc needs to be repaired. A required file is missing.
    what do I do now?

    You were supposed to do a Clean Boot, it seems you booted to Safe Mode. Were you in Safe Mode.

    I misspoke. I followed the instructions in the link which took me to a clean boot. I plan to use a macrium rescue disk and restore a recent image backup of the system partition. Once my nerves settle down.... Hope that fixes things.
    Makes a slow shutdown seem like a minor nuisance! 😋

    Un-nerved me too. Been that kind of day, was on chat line with Quicken. Pulled the plug before my file was rendered useless.

    Something ain't right. If performing a standard clean boot puts you system in ditch then after you've restored I would start with

    SFC /scannow

    Yeah, there are days like that.
    The clean boot went well. It's when I followed the final instructions to return to a "normal" boot that things went crazy.

    Once I restore (by tomorrow) I will definitely scan the drive.

    (Don't even get me started on Quicken).

    Thanks for being there Ken.

    I'm dead in the water. There seems to be no system (I think) on the laptop's hard drive. I restored the c partition and W 10 system from macrium backup but it still won't boot from the hdd. I also have a W 10 rescue usb but it won't boot from there and I can't access the bios despite numerous tries. It will boot with a macrium rescue cd which is how I restored but still won't boot from hdd.
    Fortunately I have recent backups for my data.

    Not sure I want to leave the laptop in a repair shop where they can copy all my personal data. Safest bet may be buying a new laptop on which to restore my data.

    Since it won't boot from the USB (Toshiba laptop) but will boot from a cd, is there a W 10 cd I can download to boot from into windows? This laptop had w7 originally upgraded to W 10.

    Bad day.......

    Downloaded W 10 iso . Reinstalling windows. Fortunately it is in a separate partition from my data partition. Will still need to reinstall all my programs unless I can restore from image backup. (After I check the hdd integrity). Light at the end of the tunnel? What a waste of time.

    This is great disk yo have in your back pocket.

    Really not sure what happened here. Clean boot and reversing should not cause this.

    Thank you. I'll get that.
    I don't know why either but I'm at least back in business. I suspect something I inadvertently did or a hdd problem. I will investigate once I'm all restored.
    Thanks for the support.
