    I ran a before and after Registry snapshot program. I found at least one entry that Windows 10 Manager added that causes my problem. Here's the added entry that causes the issue:

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System\AllowBlockingAppsAtShutdown = 0x00000001

    AllowBlockingAppsAtShutdown doesn't normaly exist. Do you have any info on this entry Brink?

    streetwolf,

    The AllowBlockingAppsAtShutdown DWORD is for the "Turn off automatic termination of applications that block or cancel shutdown" group policy located at Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\System\Shutdown Options in Local Group Policy (gpedit.msc).

    If you like, delete the AllowBlockingAppsAtShutdown DWORD, restart the computer, and test to see if you still have the issue.

    I already did that through adding it to the Registry myself. I suspect that going through GPEDIT would create the same Reg entry. I wonder if the entry was present in my previous version of Windows 10. If so than there is something different about W10 TH2.

    I looked at all the Windows 10 Manager settings and can't seem to find the culprit. It is possible it is on the menu. I haven't changed anything on it btw.

    AllowBlockingAppsAtShutdown should not be there by default. It's only added when you enable the policy in gpedit.msc or manually in Registry Editor.

    That setting in W10 Manager enables the same policy.

    Which setting in Windows 10 Manager? Is it on the screenshot? Is it one of the sliders?

    The top check box at the bottom in your screenshot. Unchecking that box enabled the policy.

    Seems counter intuitive. I would think checking the box would add the reg entry. Also, I thought the second option might be the culprit. Guess I can test it out since I know what to change it back too.

    Yep, that's one of the main reasons why I don't like using 3rd party utility programs. Their default settings can do a number on you if you don't understand what they may do.

    I added the option in the Registry, yet when I went into W10 Manager nothing looked different any where. The menu looked exactly like my screenshot. Perhaps it's being added surreptitiously. I've found W10 Mgr over the years to be very reliable. If this entry was being added all the time then there is something about the new Windows 10 that behaves differently.

    I emailed the author my findings now let's see what he says. This problem was really on my mind and being anal I just had to find out what was causing it. I'll let you know how things turn out. Thanks for all your posts.

    Since it's a 3rd party program, I'm not sure if it'll update itself or not when you manually change the registry.
