Endless Windows Shutdown

Hi,

Every time I shutdown or restart, Windows hangs (seemingly endlessly) on
"Saving Your Settings," before it completes the shutdown process. It's
actually more like a minute and a half or so, which is much longer than I
remember it being not so long ago. I have researched possible causes and
even played with some of my "services" settings, but nothing seems to help.

Would anyone have any ideas or remedies for me?

Thanks in advance,
Rick
