microsoftThere are a lot of reasons why your Windows Vista may take too long to shut down. Most of the time these issues have to do with Vista itself which doesn’t manage to terminate a program properly and wait, wait, wait endlessly. There is a nice feature in the Control Panel that lets you understand what is wrong with your Vista and what program is slowing down its shut down time. Here is the trick:

  1. Click Start.
  2. Click Control Panel.
  3. Click Performance, Information and Tools.
  4. On the left pane click Advanced Tools.
  5. On the upper part of the window, just before “View advanced information about your computer’s performance” there is a small section which, in case something is wrong with you Vista, should report the following message: “Programs are causing Windows to shut down slowly”
  6. Click on it and find out which program is slowing down your PC.

    There is no section is Advanced tools with my version of Vista that has “View advanced information about your computer’s performance”. I am using Vista Home Premium.

    If this information is only available in some other version of Vista, then shame on Microsoft. I am continually frustrated by buying a PC and then after six months the Microsoft OS being using grinds to a halt.

    I do regular Virus checks, have minimal software running and my systems start behaving like a Commodore 64. Microsoft needs to improve their OS complexity. This may be the last time I ever buy another Microsoft OS, I am so annoyed.
