Here is the resolution and I have had NO problems on shut down since
disabling some of my programs in STARTUP.
Go into your DEFENDER
click on SOFTWARE EXPLORER (down in the bottom right corner of the screen)
click on REFRESH
look down the list - those are ALL your startup programs which automatically
run every time you start your computer up.
click on any of the programs that you DO NOT want to auto STARTUP, then
It is obvious that one or some of your programs in that STARTUP list is
causing the problem.
In my case the problems on hanging on shut down were caused by Roxio and
Creative software, so I disabled all of them and BINGO, I have no more
problems with SHUT DOWN.
