My Windows 8 laptop has taken to show the following message when I try to shut down.


Task Host Window is stopping background tasks.

It gives the option to cancel (the shutdown?) or to shutdown anyway.


Any idea why this has started? Is it bad? How do I stop it?

I have run a full scan with MBAM. Nothing detected.


Moved from the Windows NT/2000/2003/2008 from to a more appropriate forum
