Hello,

Really hope someone can help me with this. I'm not sure what i changed or installed since this problem began. But it takes longer than 40 min for my laptop to shut down. Would appreciate any help!!

Try running a copy of CCleaner. Or if it just started less then a month ago, you may try a system restore. you won't loos any data, it will only restore the system state back to that date you select.

There's no logical why ccleaner WOULD help.

Let's start with this:

Open msconfig and on the General tab choose "selective startup" (uncheck all three items) and reboot. Does the problem still occur? If not, start adding items back to msconfig one or two at a time, rebooting after each change, until the problem reappears and you'll have identified the offending process. This is clearly a time consuming procedure, but it is the best way to determine if some process loading with the system is the cause of your problem.
After you've isolated the cause, do not use msconfig to permanently disable the process. Instead, if it is a service go to START - RUN and type: services.msc (then press enter) and disable the service OR, if it a program, you can download & run a simple app such as Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel (http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml) to enable, disable, or otherwise manage startup programs.

Yes, it's a time consuming process. But glad you're all set now. You're welcome.
