Hello everyone! :-)
I am trying to figure out which app prevents my Windows 10 machine from shutting down / rebooting.
When I want to shut my machine down, every second or third time, the message "Closing apps and shutting down" appears for about five seconds. After that the system shuts down / reboots normally.
I wasn't able to find the programs named in this dialog. I looked in the task manager and also started Sysinternals ProcMon and checked the processes. Didn't find it.
The apps listed in the shutdown dialog are the following:
HKUSBKEYMSG (more often)
CFD File Open Message Window (only very rare)
Is there any way to find out which processes are really preventing the shutdown?
Any log file or a way to the full path of the blocking application?
Unfortunately google doesn't know much about the named processes.
Or is this just something I shouldn't be worried about and ignore?
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance
