In case anyone else turns up here looking for information on "Layered Hidden Windows" I thought that I would just point out that these are not necessarily sinister or evidence of a malicious infection. If an application generates a secondary window (as many will do) and the application itself is then minimized by the user to the task bar, the secondary window is hidden by the OS (i.e., it is not closed, but it is invisible on the desktop). If the hidden secondary window is busy performing some function or waiting for some user input and the computer is shut down then it can be difficult or impossible for the OS to close it automatically (it shouldn't be, of course, but in this world, and at Redmond in particular, who expects perfect programming?). Hence the "This program is not responding ..." message. (Incidentally, "Layered" usually means that the window is dressed up with some fancy graphics.)
So, you can try to identify the offending application by terminating (rather than closing) each running program individually before shutting down the computer. If you successfully terminate all listed (and legitimate) applications, but still get the message at shutdown, then you can start to worry about more sinister possibilities
