Long shutdown on pc with w7

  platters 14:45 20 Nov 2014

My PC takes a long time to shut down(never used to). It comes up saying that programmes need to be shutdown by force.If I manually close these programmes -normally about 3 - then it helps to speed up the closing down process.One of the programmes always seems to be 'task host'Any advise would be welcome.

Thanks for replying.The Hotfix from MS cured my PC but I still have the same problem on my laptop.I will try to modify Regeit and see if this works.
