    Windows 7 Shutdown hangs

    A bizzare one which I cant seem to find anything useful about. I know there are a fair few of you using Windows 7 out there now and I was wondering if any of you have seen the following problem... which has only recently appeared.

    On shutdown, the machine appears to hang taking a very long time. So, we enabled Verbose mode to try and see what on earth was going on. It is hanging on "Shutting down Group Policy Client service". Any ideas?

    Startup seems normal, although we do get the occasional slow startup too - but the shutdown is constant.

    DNS seems normal, Startup/Shutdown scripts seem normal - I cant figure it out!

    Help..!

    Hi,

    Do you have any shutdown/logoff scripts?

    Do you have issues on any other Windows 7 machines?

    Are all the machines the same hardware?

    I assume you can reproduce the problem?

    Can you post/pm the verbose logging?

    Yep, have both shutdown and logoff scripts. Will post up the details later on (well tomorrow as cant do it right now from home)...


    The issue exists on all the Win 7 machines on site. Mixture of hardware - so i think i can rule out drivers which was my other thought.

    Will also post up the verbose log tomorrow.

    Hi

    Ok. Do these logoff/shutdown scripts work fine with other Windows 7 machines?

    I assume, you have tried to disable these in the GPO (if set there) and tested?

    Have the same problem (but not done as much investigation as you). Was thinking it was either our (cobbled together) wireless as it's generally OK if its the only machine on a given AP OR that our 2003 Server was causing some sort of bottleneck.

    Hi

    If you have the same issue then I guess you can follow this thread too and provide us all with your details/setup.

    Ive tried dropping a machine all the way out back to the computers OU so all it gets is essentially the Default Domain Policy - which is unchanged. Im suspecting a dodgy update somewhere - much like the one which broke folder redirection a while back. All Windows 7 systems are affected by the issue. XP is unaffected. The shutdown scripts are the same across OS - and dont do anything significant which is why I tried disabling to see if there was a change in behaviour.

    Driving me nuts, and not doing my Windows 7 push many favours

    Comforting to know Im not alone on this issue tho... MSFT bods, where are you!

    Hi

    OK, so you have disabled and tested and the issue still remains. You mentioned WU. Has this issue always been around or after deployment of patche(s)?

    Hi BoX,

    Today I just fixed the same issue you're having. For us it was an issue with a particular shutdown script. Once the script was removed the client machine instantly began shutting down as normal.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I do have a logging script that runs at shutdown, I'll move them to a different ou tomorrow and see if it makes a difference.
